QUESTION TYPE: Most Strongly Supported
CONCLUSION: Smith argues that we cannot give children the responsibility of voting.
REASONING: Children’s conceptions of what can and should be done are too simple. Their time horizons are different from adults’. And they usually aren’t told anything about the issues.
ANALYSIS: Smith’s point is simple: children can’t be trusted with voting. We might be denying their rights. But that’s less important than not letting them muck things up.
- Smith implicitly admits that children’s rights may be infringed.
- This is something supported by Rossi’s argument.
- Smith is arguing against letting children vote.
- CORRECT. Smith doesn’t deny Rossi’s point. He just says we simply cannot allow children to vote. They couldn’t handle the responsibility.
- Neither Smith nor Rossi make this point.
