or in a society where innocent people are detained against their will, thieves are paid by the state to oppress the citizens, unjust laws are made to infringe upon the freedoms of the innocent, and a false title of security is put up that cannot even be ensured...
Perhaps staying out of trouble cannot be done. But not trusting the oppressors, and thieves can. Staying away from the danger of the government in general, arming oneself to defend your freedoms, and not getting caught is even more advisable.
Certain things are easy to get them up in arms over, such as blatant harm of other innocent lives. So avoiding that is rather wise, as is avoiding any form of relationship with anyone loyal to any governing body. Don't go harm people because the risk is too high, but you're going to break the law eventually. Don't get caught.
