    The idea that students (particularly first year and international) have in mind an existential battle between freedom and compulsion when voting, and not the $5 food voucher, is laughable. What a complete projection on Brandis’ part. Most are too disengaged and clueless (with notable exceptions) to have any awareness of the politics behind the slogans and free sausages routinely handed out.
