What we teach our students is that the First Amendment Right of Freedom of Assembly is subject to official university recognition. Thus teaching our kids that Freedom of Assembly (thus association) is not absolute, but subject to state approval and the Political Correct Thought of the Day.
But we further teach our kids that in exchange for losing your rights, you get supported by the State (University) in the form of Funding. The funds come from Student Fees (TAXES) imposed by the state. But no worries, the Student Government, a democratically elected body, votes on the distribution of the funds so all is "legal". However, we quickly teach our kids that the purpose of government is to doll out goodies rather than protect liberty. We also teach our kids to get involved in elections not to insure responsible limited government, but to elect people friendly to your association's cause. This teaches candidates to go from organization to organization promising to increase funding in exchange for endorsement.
No wonder young people come out of the University blind democratic supporters.
