comment “Restrict” versus “constrict”
Right. My confusion arises from the fact that narrowing/tightening something (i.e. constricting it) is one way to limit (i.e. restrict) that thing. In other words, constricting something implies the restriction of another thing.

comment “Decimate”: has it been used in the “classic” sense in modern writing?
I only see a snippet, and here it is: "Two notions for future films. One: a political situation like that in Spain. A decimation order. Ten men in prison draw lots with matches. A rich man draws the longest match."
