The aim of this brief work is to analyze what Hobbes said about sedition in his political works. We will try to do it in three different sections: in the first one, we will see which are the ingredients that can cause sedition; and then, in the second, which are the characteristics of those who want to start a revolution and to achieve their goal. Finally, as conclusion, we’ll see that the only way to neutralize sedition is developing the citizenship education.
