No one can work under this regime if he or she has principles.

Why can't these people spell out exactly what the issues are rather than saying their inability to work according to their principles or conscience? Why no backbone to stand up and be counted?

It is heartening to note that there are still people of this calibre who do not wish to compromise their principles for financial and material benefits, although we have glaring examples of even "scholars" toing the government line and demeaning themselves in public keeping shoulder to shoulder with uneducated thugs.
