I want you to consider how stupid the premise of rebelling against a thing you don't know about is. Yes, there is nerfarious stuff going on behind the scenes. But like with many APs, it's really behind the scenes. It's nothing that is known. It's not why the rebellion occurs. On the outside, the supposedly super oppressive government is literally not super oppressive and most of the proclamations are actually obviously beneficial and a non-hindrance to the average citizen.
Trying to say "But there's really bad stuff that the PCs aren't aware of, and that's why the PCs should rebel" should in and of itself demonstrate why it's dumb.
The stuff quickly unfolds in the first adventure, becomes glaringly visible to the PCs and is the actual cause for the rebellion. You really should read the things you want to argue about first.
