οὕτως: emphatic, ‘with that proviso’ (D. and V.).

πράττοντες is quite satisfactory: cf. λέγει τε καὶ πράττει 564 D. Richter should not have proposed ταράττοντες.

ὅπῃ δύνανται κτλ.: ‘in any way they can.’ Their opportunities of public action in self-defence are limited; hence they form e.g. secret associations and the like. On the tense of ἔσχον see 548 D note, and for the statement itself (αἰτίανὀλιγαρχικοί) many passages in Aristophanes, e.g. Wasps 488 ff. and others quoted by Whibley Pol. Part. in Athens p. 65 note 3.
