I’m not a law student. I just rely on comments and opinions of those whom i think and feel has explained this subject well. I also use references to help me understand the subject matter. 

The topic at hand is Inciting to sedition. As a blogger, i’m concerned that i will be penalized for committing this crime.. And so join me in taking a look at this provision of the law of the Republic of the Philippines.
