You mean "ethical consultants," if you want to construct an oxymoron, and I
don't see the antithetical connection here that would be necessary to construct
an oxymoron. What exactly would it be? that consultants by definition are
unethical? Where's the joke?
Sorry, but I take except to your "irresistible" kidding, since I am an
ethically minded consultant.
My livelihood depends upon my reputation; my reputation depends upon my
character; my character depends upon my ethics.
Perhaps you are making one of those broad sweeping generalizations
(stereotyping) from a specific case you have in mind, or had experienced.
Perhaps you did not think before you spoke.
