Smart, honest and loyal to the government

If I am not mistaken, a researcher from the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) wrote an article on the character of the government officials in Indonesia. The researcher says that there are three characters of government officials in Indonesia; smart, honest (not corrupt) and loyal to the government. However, none of the government officials have all three of these characters at once. If he is smart and honest, he is not loyal to the government. Usually, the government officials are stupid, if they are honest and loyal to the government. He is corrupt if he is smart and loyal to the government.
