I need some help understanding a part of the polish revolution in November 1830!
After failing at killing the brother of the tzar the people took the arsenal and "conquert" northern Warschau. After that a government was founded. (3. December) Now Józef Chłopicki fought against revolutionary ways of thinking and made himself a dictator.

WHY was he fighting against revolutionists? Wasn't he one imself?

No - he agreed to that role (not an unusual one during that period) at the behest of his troops and gave it up after a month. He certainly didn't fight against "revolutionary ways"

He was a remarkable man.

WHY was he fighting against revolutionists?

He wasn't

who knows

He held aloof at first from the November Uprising of 1830-31, but at the general request of his countrymen accepted the dictatorship on 5 December 1830. However, he saw the hopelessness of the insurrection and quickly resigned on 17th of January; then, however, he joined the army as a private soldier and fought in some battles. At Wawer (February 19) and at the Battle of Olszynka Grochowska (February 20) he displayed all his old bravery, but was so seriously wounded at the Battle of Olszynka Grochowska that he had to be conveyed to Kraków, near which city he lived in complete retirement until his death in 1854.
