Irony, or Oxymoron?

Am I the only one who thinks this is bleakly funny?

An opening for Adjunct Faculty in Business Ethics?

Whoa. I think my irony-filtering lobe just exploded, 'cause that job listing gives me a painful headache.

I don't find it funny at all. Perhaps you don't understand that military bases have education programs available to both members of the military and the civilians who work on the base.

Besides, who needs ethics education more these days than the people with the bombs.

If you think it is ironic that they have adjuncts teaching business ethics, in that the conditions of adjunct employment are unethical-- then you have something.

Frankly, as an instructor, I'd much rather teach members of the military than my current students. The military pays for their classes only if they get a C or better -- so attendance and work is generally pretty good. I also liked teaching military members because they can follow directions.

My point precisely.

Thanks for the clarification... as it is clear to me that adjunct contracts are usually anything but ethical...

My area of study is the ethics of war, you may be shocked at how often I get comments to the effect that the military cannot both be the military AND be ethical. That was the basis for my response above, sorry you hit a nerve you may not have even realized was there.
