You may have misinterpreted my observation as criticism.  It was,

There's nothing wrong with not being employed by a company because you
don't agree with the company.  In some professions, its a professional
duty to not work for such a company.  It follows that if there are _no_
employers with whom you agree then there is a mismatch between your
morals and the wider culture in which you find yourself.  You would then
be a refugee of concience.  Hopefully, your country is large and diverse
enough to have a multitude of culture from which to choose in which to
immerse yourself. (I'm Canadian Eh?)
