A key tenet of much progressive thinking, the phrase, "From each according to ability, to each according to need" was a slogan popularised by Karl Marx in the late nineteenth century, and is central to the philosophy of the People's Republic of Stokes Croft.

The Marx drawing is by Sarah McCarthy*, the layout by Chris Chalkley.

The secondary quote to the rear of the mug, "The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways. The point, however, is to change it", speaks of the necessity to act.

On the base, we have "Workers of the World, Unite", a rallying cry derived from the 1848 Communist Manifesto, on which is scrawled, "Lumpen+". The Lumpenproletariat are the unorganized and unpolitical lower orders of society who are not interested in revolutionary advancement.

No Lords, No Masters!

A must have for the revolutionaries amongst us.
