"I immediately contacted the apartment and asked them to take the trash can away."

So you would have done nothing, if you had had your way?

I would have contacted them, even if I were living in a "non-totalitarian" apartment. So IMO you didn't have to reason out all those worst-case scenarios. You could have just contacted them from the start, and saved yourself all that anxiety.

I have that trashcan bullshit too. I don't even use it, it's too small. Other neighbors were leaving theirs outside though so I do too since it wastes space inside.

So a court or any institution made up of Americans would support the apartment in extorting me with dishonest fines.

Yup. I got evicted because the last apartment complex didn't want to fix the AC. Judge just rubber stamped it despite the apartment having an obligation to provide AC as a safety issue, and retaliation is supposed to be illegal.

Your analysis is correct but the anxiety isn't justified. Just continue analyzing modern situations in this way, by understanding the insanity of modern culture, and you should have no problems.
