I think that a lot of the strongest forms of anarchy would take generations of unlearning the old world, and of people changing the culture to build in habits against rising authorities.
(this is not to say that we can't have meaningfully anarchic lives in our own lifetimes)

I often wonder which of the things I believe are garbage.

On a related by separate note, I grew up in a pretty messed up space and I'm aware of a small handful of things already that I do badly that I don't think I can actually make better because of how my brain is wired. The amount of those things that I'm not aware of must be many.

I know exactly what you mean. I've had the exact same feeling of being stuck with bad habits and traits that i would rather be without, but with time i have managed to slowly handle them one by one, and have yet to find something i cannot change at all. I think the key is just to pay close attention, always keep whatever you want to change written behind your ear and stick with a healthy belief that you can change. Nothing is hardcoded, in my experience at least.

That would be nice! I'm working on it. I think one reason why it seems so hard is that there's just so much to learn that slowly handling those one by one seems far away.
