Robert Arthur.
You Will Die: the burden of modern taboos.
Feral House. 2012

Taboos are not merely the relics of primitive societies. To be sure, America has its own absurd beliefs that foment unhappiness, suffering, and death.

YOU WILL DIE exposes the fallacies and history behind our taboos on bodily functions, sex, drugs, and death. Author Robert Arthur razes the sacred shrines of political correctness on the left and conventional wisdom on the right.

This book is not simply an exploration into sex and drugs, but also of liberty and the meaning of life. It instructs on the proper way to defecate and how to reach nirvana. It vigorously defends heroin users anc sex workers, and in the end provides a more informed choice about living an authentic life.
