conduct that incites rebellion
(Redirected from Seditious)

Sedition is overt conduct, such as speech organization, that tends toward rebellion against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent toward, or insurrection against, established authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interest of sedition.

Quotes edit

Those provisions which remained in the law up to today, have not been used for a long time. For instance, the excitement of disaffection against the Government should not be criminalised. I think if it is, a lot of people including many in this House, would be considered criminals.
