The act of constraining, or the state of being constrained;

Syn: Compulsion; violence; necessity; urgency.
Usage: Constraint, Compulsion. Constraint implies strong
binding force; as, the constraint of necessity; the
constraint of fear. Compulsion implies the exertion of
some urgent impelling force; as, driven by compulsion.
The former prevents us from acting agreeably to our
wishes; the latter forces us to act contrary to our
will. Compulsion is always produced by some active
agent; a constraint may be laid upon us by the forms
of civil society, or by other outward circumstances.
