"Limiting" is not used as a main verb in that sentence. It is a verbal, called a present participle, which is often used as a modifier. In my opinion, the entire phrase including and following "limiting" is an adverbial participial phrase, which modifies the verb "controls".Originally Posted by Taka
I see "to select...interest" as a restatement/redefinition of the first. It also could be seen as an additional infinitive phrase modifying "freedom".
