idk, I am someone who does things and is motivated and does things for completely different things than u. So idk, u seem to be assuming I'm upset or want to change when the reality is I don't actually care too much and don't really have a problem doing the unidealistic thing if it benefits me. I've been pretty open that I don't care about being nice, being ethical and mostly am just looking out for myself. So it should be no real surprise that I step back from anarchy when in a situation where doing anarchy would be something that makes my life worse for some other purpose such as virtue or ethics or whatever

i wasn’t sure if this was some kind of “we live in a society” performance art. but yeah if you literally don’t care, would you be a cop if it benefitted you? would you be a fascist? be a politician? join the military?

nah because all those things is just choosing to be ruled more (dear leader, the populous, police chief and millitary generals respectively). But like this isn't a suprise I"ve spent plenty of time on this site on the benefits of stock ownership (i.e. profiting from owning companies that do stuff like drill oil, build bombs for US millitary and slavery ect). I think its a poor idea now ovi but like for self interested reasons rather than virtuous ones.

so

you want as much liberty for yourself as you can get, but you're fine with taking it from others, exploiting others, or doing whatever in order to get it?

like, maybe i'm not getting it, but the way you are describing yourself, you are just describing like 90% of the world population. "i just want to get as much good for myself, and fuck whatever gets trampled behind me along the way"

No u get it. If I can't be fucked to try and minimize hierachy then I'm not really an anarchist.
