People aren’t really regulated to a certain standard or behavior. This means that we can, Baruch Hashem, behave like Frum Jews should, without getting thrown in jail or beaten. However, people can also, for example, say anything they want essentially; dress how they want, etc. Chas V’Shalom.
It is a very tough time spiritually -- but it is also an absolutely tremendous opportunity to flourish in the Service of the Awesome King in this “free world”.
