Just yanking your chain

a bit.

Since you seemed to be saying that someone couldn't work for the
government and be an anarchist.

Kropotkin clearly worked for the government and was pretty clearly
an anarchist although he didn't really become one until quite a while
after he left the Russian military.

So it's not like he was an anarchist and army officer at the same time,
although his experiences in the army in Siberia did influence his ideas
about society, nature and politics...
