I’ve bought that land with my money

I’ve bought that land with my money. Why should I pay tax on it?

The piece of land that someone buys would quickly lose its value if the state of civil order were to deteriorate, or people were to move away or if the community did not constantly sustain that value by ensuring that the physical and social infrastructure is kept in good order, all at the expense of the taxpayer. That is a valuable service and worth paying for, is it not?
