Phillip W. Magness really ought to know better.
First of all, according to his own CV, he is currently both Academic Program Director for the (Koch Bros. funded) Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University and Adjunct Professor of Public Policy, School of Policy, Government, and International Affairs at George Mason University.
Secondly, adjuncts been down this road before, more than once—twice, even—with Magness and his ilk. We’re still puzzled by why the little cadre of which Magness is part that styles itself “bleeding heart Libertarians” is so hostile to the idea of treating adjuncts, contingent faculty or whatever you want to call us, equitably, besides their Libertarian politics, but there it is. Anti-education Koch money might also be a factor.
