In the USSR, during Stalin’s reign, a loudspeaker was placed in every public square in every village, town and city. It broadcast the regime’s political propaganda during most of the day. At the University of Michigan, a far more sophisticated device was purchased and installed at a cost that could have gone to assist needy students, in order to convey the administration’s line on a few social issues. It uses electricity, generates noise and is watched by no one—except one associate dean who was observed admiring himself on the screen. Is this a good use of taxpayer and tuition money?
Q: What’s more dangerous than something that “uses electricity, generates noise and is watched by no one”?
