Search for Land:Land - n. a part of the earth's surface considered as property. The theory that land is property subject ot private ownership and control is the foundation of all agrarian and post-agrarian society. Carried to its logical conclusion, it means that some have the right to prevent others from living; for the right to own implies the right to occupy exclusively; and, in fact, laws of tresspass are enacted and enforced wherever property in land is recognized. It follows that if the whole area of terra firma is owned by A, B, C, there will be no place for D,E,F, and G to be born. Or, born as tresspassers, to exist.
