Look, sock of the day, if you want to be taken seriously, then make an academic-style case with explicit premises and supported points. Stop throwing out one-liners as though they meant anything.
I don't see why your style requirements lead necessarily to more purposeful or successful communication in the long run. It wouldn't be good if everyone wrote the same way. It would be monotonous.
I recognize what I'm doing, and I don't see why, given the stakes, that a particular discourse (or tone) needs to prevail in this discussion. In many way these subjects probably suffer from too much "academic-style," certainly too much politesse. How many times have I read in these pages, that adjuncts get what they deserve, because they don't stand up for themselves?
I'm curt, because I'm tired. I'm tired of the way that language, as argument, pretends to be action. These threads go nowhere and get caught up in sideshows and minutiae in the name of argument.
As for meaning in my earlier post, it's not entirely in my hands, but I'll rephrase, as things have gotten more dialectical: there's been a lot of "magical thinking" going on in this economy about labor, generally, for the last couple of decades. Naomi Klein did a good job of outlining this in No Logo in the mid-1990s.
If the adjunct is thinking "magically" about his/her situation, he/she isn't the only one. Administrators and employers are thinking even more magically if they think that they can sustain a faculty, a department, a school, or a society, by eliminating decent-paying, full-time jobs and replacing them with so-called adjunct positions.
