In your opinion, is it better for those in government to say their opinions are their own, or to hide their employment altogether?

Again, in DOD (where I have the most experience, sorry :p), most people just hide the fact that they are service members. However, now that I’m in the private sector, FTC guidance prefers employees be more forthright with their “material connections.” They must be displayed prominently and in proximity to messaging that could be considered influencing on opinions surrounding the company.
