Yubia: Permanent Autonomous Zone
Yubia is a Permanent Autonomous Zone located in the Sierra Nevada range of Northern California.
The Non-Aggression Principle (NAP) is the guiding ethic of Yubia. The State (government) and its attendant use of coercion and violence, is eschewed in favor of peaceful voluntary transactions and cooperative efforts.
The people of Yubia are a free, independent and community-minded people who wish to be free of statist politics, bureaucracies and regulation. We are advocates of non-political, non-violent strategies to achieve a free society.
The concept for Yubia is influenced by Zomia, the politically autonomous region in Southeast Asia, James C. Scott’s The Art of Not Being Governed: An Anarchist History of Upland Southeast Asia, the writings of Hakim Bey, and the concept of swaraj or self-rule, as propounded by Mohandas K. Gandhi.
