Or even in a practical sense, either.
If you are practicing believing you don't have freedom (choice, opportunity) in your job, simply quitting your job probably isn't going to shift your perspective. Until and unless you move out of the perspective that your freedom or slavery depends on external circumstance, it's only a matter of the next external circumstance (a new job, your own business, a relationship, a lack of money) coming along in your life to have you being enslaved again.
The encouragement to just go ahead and quit your job and then you'll be free reminds me of the dad who throws his kid into the deepest part of the lake so that he'll learn how to swim (hopefully). Well, that's one way! And it might work. But it's something of an incomplete education.
