False - the more you know the wider your options to choose from. But freedom only exists in the mind of the free. Your freedom is limited by the extent you're willing to obey, if laws or social conventions are unjust they should be disobeyed.

I don't see how they're related at all. Certainty is empowering. It allows us to move ahead with confidence.
