Isn't this exactly the situation for which bridges were designed? For
when your opponent has full control of your upstream and really wants 
to stop you from using Tor?

China has had success enumerating and blocking bridges, so bridges are
obviously not bulletproof. So far, I think they are the only ones able
to block bridges reliably. A few countries have blocked the public Tor
network, though.

Therefore, it would seem that bridges are much safer than using normal
Tor, and normal Tor is in turn much safer than accessing the websites
