Someday I wanna toot a thread about Anabaptists/anarchism. The tl;dr is there’s been compromise since, but the original Anabaptists were comrades of revolting peasants who went another route.

Not baptizing babies == not enrolling in the state registers.

Refusing drafts and being killed instead.

Forming separate communities and breaking all kinds of thinks first of religious-based but also anything against their life ethos.
