The first badges were made by Eric Austen of Kensington CND using white clay with the symbol painted black. Again there was a conscious symbolism. They were distributed with a note explaining that in the event of a nuclear war, these fired pottery badges would be among the few human artefacts to survive the nuclear inferno.
Not a great analogy, I know. I was just trying to think of an adequate framing for people being convinced that covid is "natural" based purely on the fact that they're against Trump and Trump is against China.
