Morrison is confident that by combining the appropriated Marxist slogan with a series of hats, neoliberalism will rise from its death bed.
In his 1875 work Critique of the Gotha Program, Karl Marx popularised the socialist slogan about people contributing to society based on their talents and taking from society based on their needs.
In a higher phase of communist society, after the enslaving subordination of the individual to the division of labor, and therewith also the antithesis between mental and physical labor, has vanished; after labor has become not only a means of life but life's prime want; after the productive forces have also increased with the all-around development of the individual, and all the springs of co-operative wealth flow more abundantly—only then can the narrow horizon of bourgeois right be crossed in its entirety and society inscribe on its banners: From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs!
144 years later, ScoMo has somewhat transformed KaMa’s ideas by reworking his slogan in the service of billionaires.
The new slogan effectively communicates the Liberal Party philosophy that people should contribute to society based on talents of their accountant and take from society based on whatever they can steal.
