How can it possibly be argued that Oedipus’ freedom at the end of the Oedipus Tyrannus is greater than his freedom at the beginning of the play?

He is free in the sense that he has the answers to the questions that he has raised and he has accomplished what he has set out to do. He has seen the results of his hubris and has had to accept the fate that has been predicted for him regardless of what he had tried to avoid. Although this is not the kind of freedom we might like in the 21st century, it could be considered a kind of freedom for Oedipus.
