Don’t they deserve a break from it?

This article is about a student who claims to have been encouraged to vote in two states by someone. https://www.insidesources.com/is-tom-steyers-nextgen-promoting-voter-fraud-in-nh/

That is a crime. The other part of the story should be. NextGen aggressively electioneers on college campuses and in dorms. They have multiple complaints for this practice. If we want the kids (or young adults) exposed to a fair spectrum of politics, there are only two choices. Republicans, Libertarians, Progressives, and whoever else is out there can respond in kind… ensuring that the college students are inundated with propaganda and perhaps soured on the entire process… never ever getting a break from it.

A more responsible approach is for colleges to set up a system where the various political groups can make themselves available for students who CHOOSE to learn about them. This still contains a bias towards PAC funded machines like NextGen, but I hope that volunteers of other parties and groups can take up the slack. Aggressive electioneering should be forbidden, and certainly forbidden in dorms. If political groups don’t respect the rules, they should be banned from campus. If that doesn’t work, maybe there should be a criminal penalty.

Participation in politics and governance should always be encouraged, but never coerced. The hyper-politicization of our society is neither healthy nor productive.
