3. People should stand up to authority when officials are wrong, even it means they could be punished more severely.

I agree with this statement, I think you should stand up for your beliefs/opinions and make changes for society. Living with the fact that you never tried, is just as bad as being punished.

I agree with this statement. I think if the officials are wrong, or if officials did something unacceptable to the society (which happens most of the time), it is of course better to stand up for your rights, than sitting and basically doing nothing, sitting on one's hands, and looking forward for a miracle to happen. Sometimes being not active can lead to the unwanted consequences, that can make the situation that people want to change in a good way, even worse. Being active and trying to help the society, trying to prove the officials mistake that they did, can be obviously really beneficial and be the solution to the problem that people face. Also trying to change something, and stand up to authority with your friend, or with the group of 5 people would not lead to the wanted result, quite hard punishment can be waiting there. Trying to change something, and creating let's say a group including 100 or more people is a much better idea, more chances to win the conflict.

I agree that the people should stand up to the government if its wrong and if the alternative is better. however when the people know that there is a problem they shouldn't go out if they have not thought it through and have not considered the alternative.
