Question everything. Rules. Orders. People. Tradition. Don't follow anything or anyone blindly.
See if it makes sense. If it still makes sense. Understand why it became the status quo, and if the same circumstances are true today. Do you agree with the intentions and the methods?
See if it aligns with your beliefs and your values. Are the rules just? Are they protecting the people, not oppressing them?
See if it's the right thing to do. Does it require you to be good? Does it challenge you to become better? Or does it cause harm?
Society often tells us what we should do, and rarely do individuals pause, to think: Is it the right thing to do?
Don't simply follow. Question. And make a stand.
