Absolute freedom doesn't exist in any modern system, and it won't. Even if there was no system, freedom won't exist. Freedom existed in the past, but not for long periods of time.
Freedom is not free, but you don't pay for it. It is unobtainable.
The more a person cares about his reputation, the less his freedom, so basically a free person is reputation-less, but no-one can be reputation-less. Since no-one can be reputation-less, no one can enjoy freedom.
