But if it's "just a job" and the level of managers above you really are infighting so much to a level of incompetence that you describe then I would just do whatever my boss tells me to do and keep my head down. I wish you the best of luck.
Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

What do you think you owe your employer? You should absolutely leverage them into a position where you are more useful to them. You seem to know how the game is played, so why are you so hesitant to play?
In any case, you have given good objective reasons why the implementation you want is better for the company. If it is the same advice you would give if asked your unbiased opinion, then there's no conflict of interest.
Disclose any conflicts of interest. Speak based on personal experience. Don't embellish or overstate the advantages or disadvantages.
