It’s rare that something as mundane as an amendment to a handbook is such an illustrative reflection of our time; though I suppose the true history of power is written in policy. The recent addition of Section II, subsection A, part 9, clause d to the IIT student handbook, along with II.A.9.c. opens students who participate in or organize disruptive demonstrations to disciplinary actions from IIT including suspension and expulsion. To most, this would seem an unremarkable piece of administrivia. It is.
