Woah hold on Etc only has three letters

Etcetera is eight... Which is still too short. I did consider putting it to greater than seven, but then I felt compelled to include Bookchin... So I made it eight.

all disputes are to be settled by fistfights, or something similar.

I don't think this would make a good society, but it would be an interesting one

No systems of measurement.

(I started with thinking no time measurements to reduce anxiety - but let's go for all measurements)

Compassion. I feel that we lack compassion in out lives. Our government and corporations have no compassion and have destroyed our species. If we can each embrace compassion we could make the world better. A compassionate CEO makes more than the person sweeping the floor. But they ensure that person can live a fulfilling life. Most people want to work and be productive. They just want a life that isn't dependant on that. We have enough resources to feed and house everyone. As we embrace compassion we can do this. We as a species can not rise until we lift the weakest. We embrace compassion and help those that are less fortunate than us.

Well, telling on myself here: I suffer greatly from envy. I am trying to hard not to be a jealous person. I grew up one of four kids and only one of the four was a favored child (I wasn't it). The rest of us tended to fight for attention and resources to no avail. So I grew up with a mindset of competition and when one person gets something, I get less of something. It's still a struggle to be happy for others when they are doing better than me.

One of my cousins has so much family support that she has been able to chase a creative dream that I had. She sucked at it at first. But she still had success despite what I thought to be waay less talent than myself. Every time my husband mentions a new project she's succeeding at, I say "I am very happy for her. She is proof that family support means everything. I will support my daughter as much as her mother has supported her." And I have to say all of that to not feel the envy.

It's a terrible emotion to feel and it really hurts me and holds me back from love and life.

Lust is the intense desire for something (though it's often used as a desire for sex because people are enamored with it) immaterial and everything I want is immaterial (autonomy and the strength to ensure it is a recurring desire), so I'd go with that. It's kind of my default to want things, so no iconic moment.

Sloth: I don't like expending effort. I hate the idea of an afterlife since I prefer to think of death as the ultimate form of rest.

Pride: Long story short, yes.

Wrath: Are you even an anarchist if you're not mad?

Greed: An obsession with gaining and hoarding more material possessions; I see it as a prison and a weakness.

Gluttony: Excessive consumption and wastefulness is a big part of why I hate America, so not a fan of this one.

Envy: I'm incompatible with this one since I treat everything as already being my property.

I like your deadly sins! I would change nosiness to malevolence and I would also include neglect and apathy.

I think I get why you mentioned naivety/credulity/gullibility, but I would say they are on the same level as sorrow. Sorrow doesn't really hurt anyone else but yourself (usually, at least) and I would say the same applies to naivety/credulity. They are undesirable for sure, but not exactly 'sins.'
