You only have what the state says you can have. The state is the ultimate decider of such things, not you. They can levy taxes as they see fit, or simply take your land if they deem it necessary. You are just dust in the wind and are told what rights you do and don't have.

The state usually says you can have and keep land as private property and it will secure your property rights with all the force of the state against any encroachment by those without land.
"The state is the ultimate decider of such things, not you. "
The US constitution is constructed around its concern for property rights. The UK has never taxed or restricted ownership of land to any signifcant extent.
Private ownership of land seems pretty widespread to me. Publicly owned land tends to be constrained. I see no evidence of that situation being under threat any time soon.
"or simply take your land if they deem it necessary."
If you investigate the origins of land ownership you will be surprised how often it originates in taking land from other people, how much is transferred through inheritance, and how little of its value is in any remote way attributable to the efforts of the owner. The privatisation of land once in common ownership, as in Britain's land clearances or the USA's genocide of native Americans, typically results in the state, having used its force to indeed clear ordinary people from the land, transferring the land on generous terms to wealthy owners.
Trump's property empire, for example (he is not unusual let alone unique) was built on dubious state support for socially harmful developments: https://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/18/nyregion/donald-trump-tax-breaks-real-estate.html
"They can levy taxes as they see fit"
Land ownership places said private owners in a position to secure a rental income from lesser mortals as they see fit. Land owners benefit from asset price inflation and monopoly positions in desperate markets to get rents far beyond any reflection of merit or effort. A significant percentage of houses in London are kept empty as investment vehicles by offshore owners, aggravating a critical housing shortage in a city filled with houses. They are kept empty partly to keep prices from falling.
"You are just dust in the wind and are told what rights you do and don't have."
Those who do not own land are just dust in the wind. Wealthy investors do not care a tinker's curse about your housing needs.
"Or are you an anarchist?"
Trying to argue that property rights are under threat from "the state" is laughable; they are under threat from the wealthy.
The anarchist here is the one wishing the state would vanish, leaving the wealthy and powerful with a free hand, and that is you of course.
