Enabling vs Disabling constraints.

An excellent cartoon showing the difference between enabling and disabling constraints.

Often, constraints are perceived as limitations, i.e. "strings attached." But most of the time, constraints work as infrastructure elements supporting a myriad of routine processes of everyday life. For example, a traffic light limits our freedom to drive through a crowded intersection, but at the same time it enables us to move safely in traffic.
