This paper explains the differences between good and evil, the idea of forced moral perfection, and the question of reality as portrayed in the movie "A Clockwork Orange." The paper also summarizes the movie and analyzes some of the most important scenes .

From the Paper:

"Moral freedom has been defined as the ability to perform both good and evil actions. It is possessing the ability to choose right from wrong and act the way that you alone choose to act. Without the presence of evil, one does not have the moral freedom to choose good, and vice versa. In A Clockwork Orange, Alex personifies moral freedom. Throughout the movie, Alex is never without the ability to choose between good and evil. Although the government conditions him to feel ill when he encounters violence, he does not choose this feeling, so in fact, he still has moral freedom. With Alex's narration of the film, one can see that he tries to put the blame of his actions onto others, but, he in fact, is to blame for his actions because he alone has to make the choice between performing evil or performing good."
