It isn't the button, it is the buttons they press. Buttons are promotional materials, like when you advertise your film with a flyer, or postcard inviting people to come and see it. Why should people come see your film? The buttons may offer some kind of hope for action and/or social change. You don't need to buy the buttons, they're free. The buttons are not an experimental visual medium, I was trying to make a point that in order to break into a conversation with you at all, I had to say so.

Who would have thought you could cure World Misery by buying some
buttons? Or that campaign buttons were an experimental visual medium?
