It looks like this man didn't quite think this whole thing through very carefully. He set himself on fire in protest of the State stealing from him and leaving him helpless and now he'll lie in a hospital bed, suffering horribly for months? What did he gain? Infamy? There's nothing heroic about setting yourself alight. There are far "smarter and quicker" ways to kill yourself. What a foolish act.
