A Rebel's Journey: My Path to Liberty
In 1999 Darryl W. Perry began a search for traditional values, which lead him down a path to the ideas of liberty. He tells the story in A Rebel's Journey: My Path to Liberty.
"When you read stories about various persons paths to liberty, it's amazing how many of these people have been 'questioning authority' since they were barely out of diapers. A Rebel's Journey definitely puts Darryl Perry into this camp... where he stands out is in the very methodical way that he came to each conclusion on a subject of freedom. Sometimes it's funny, and sometimes I think it's crazy, but it's always authentic. This is a heartfelt memoir, but it's one with a point. And the point is: Anyone can find real freedom, no matter how winding the road is." ~ Dr. Brian Sovryn, Sovryn Tech
“The soft spoken journey of one of the most hardcore peace activists is a rational take on the everyday logic of anarchism. Darryl Perry sees the beauty of freedom. The reader sees his beautiful soul.“ ~ Angela Keaton, Antiwar.com
"It's sad that the world is getting so bad that yearning for freedom is a rebellious act. But, for those who do want to rebel against tyranny this book is an excellent start down that path." ~ Jeff Berwick, The Dollar Vigilante

Regarding drugs for example he states the following: "While I do not condone the abuse of any substance, I do not believe that jailing people who use a substance that can be misused is a good way to discourage use or abuse of said substance… I long for the day in which all substances are as legal as tomatoes".
He believes governments should not force you to fund its schools, roads, post offices or other government function. "My solution to operating a government without taxation is to have said government rely on voluntary contributions, just as privately run businesses and charities do!"
Perry is against the death penalty believing that innocent people have been executed which makes state-funded capital punishment immoral. His view on marriage is that if two people wish to get married and either partner desires to bring another person into the relationship they should be allowed to do so. He invites immigration believing people should be allowed to live where they so choose.
The author would also like for government to be removed from the educational equation. "Public schools do not exist to educate children, rather the schools exist to mold children into replicas of one another".
In the several jobs and places he has lived he refers to himself as a "news junkie"and has been an advocate and activist for peace and liberty.
Because of his refusal to comply with laws this award-winning author found himself in court several times. Today he leads a busy life also as a publisher, radio/TV host and regular contributor to several weekly and monthly newspapers. He can be found hosting several podcasts as well.
