on land, love, civilization, and corruption

The first man who, having enclosed a piece of ground, bethought himself of saying: This is mine, and found people naive enough to believe him, was the real founder of civil society. From how many crimes, wars and murders, from how many horrors and misfortunes might not any one have saved mankind, by pulling up the stakes or filling up the ditch, and crying to his fellows:Beware of listening to this imposter; you are undone if you once forget that the fruits of the earth belong to us all, and the earth itself to nobody.
--Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Thus The importance of emptiness.
House of Light: Decolonization. Free your mind from the tricks of those around you. Believe in the Natural, the nature of things, the Laws of the Universe, not those of beliefs of others. Trust yourself, let go, and find your way, though the darkness, to the house of light.
