Do you have a limited vocabulary? Respectable has many meanings depending on context. It can be used to mean broadly something which is good or adequately sufficient for an individual compared to other individuals. An example --
"Max's 4 minute and 20 second time for the one mile run was a respectable time" or
"Mary is so well mannered and respects everyone, even her dog and servants that she will make a respectable wife"
Nothing to do with society, politics or anarchism, just plain respectable!
