I’ve recently been told that tomorrow MSA will be voting on a proposed gag rule to prohibit the Communiciations Committee and Peace and Justice Commission from taking any points of view, or “carry out its duties in a fair and equitable manner to all constituents while refraining from promoting itself, or the Michigan Student Assembly, as a body of bias.” While I think it’s hilarious they used the phrase “body of bias,” it’s troubling there’s people who so fundamentally misunderstand representative government. It remains to be seen whether or not they will abolish the Students’ Rights Commission, Environmental Issues Commission, and LBGT Affairs Commission, and rename themselves the “Michigan Student Unbiased Allocations Committee.”
