How to use subversive in a sentence?

  1. Lionel Trilling:

    Any historian of the literature of the modern age will take virtually for granted the adversary intention, the actually subversive intention, that characterizes modern writing -- he will perceive its clear purpose of detaching the reader from the habits of thought and feeling that the larger culture imposes, of giving him a ground and a vantage point from which to judge and condemn, and perhaps revise, the culture that produces him.

  2. King Salman:

    We will resolutely confront aggressive threats and subversive activities.

  3. Nicholas Alahverdian:

    A conspiracy, in short, is based on small groups with inherently competing interests. At some point in the evolution of the competition between two or more groups (and in some cases, within subversive groups), there are rumors or allegations made of sinister behavior or a secretive plot developed by the members or the leadership of the groups. Occasionally, the groups will have diametrically opposed goals and this leads to further subversion.

  4. Dave Chronister:

    The Iranian government is blocking access to certain IP ranges altogether (such as news sites) and at the same time they are also allowing certain sites to be accessed, but they are using content filtering to block what they consider to be risky or subversive, for example Twitter hashtags. So the Iranian activists are using different ‘tunneling’ methods to hide their traffic through encryption and therefore bypass government restrictions – for instance, they use a Virtual Private Network (VPN).

  5. Mike Vigil:

    The National Guard has been key to opening up the doors into Venezuela for Colombian drug trafficking organizations and subversive groups, they have transformed Venezuela into a massive pipeline for cocaine into the United States and Europe.
