No. Freedom is recognizing that nothing has ever been done to you, because reactions stem from inner perspective, not external happenstance. You've done it all to yourself, via your framing choices.

Once you recognize the truth (that perspective contextualizes Everything, and your reactions follow from your perspective, and that every bit of this is determined entirely by you), that’s freedom.
It does, however, require a willingness to feel stupid. You'd have to acknowedge a lifetime of profoundly ditzy obliviousness and needless stress and fury. You can either be smart or feel smart (never both), and most people prefer to feel smart, even if it means extending and compounding their stupidity.
