Why does control tuggle with openness?

Why is there a tuggle between the structure and control people and the openness and freedom people? First, “different strokes for different folks”–some people really do need more control/openness/whatever you can name, as strange as that might seem to you. Second, there are outer limits to the orbit of human culture: there is a dance between passion and responsibility, and as each swings his or her partner out the dance also pulls the partner into the embrace. So it is necessary for us to hold our position and equally to allow our partner to hold his or hers.
