I Choose You, Irony!

From Ch. 26 of How to Read Literature Like a Professor.

"In other words, Burgess reminds us that for goodness to mean anything, not only must evil exist, but so must the option of choosing evil" (243).

First, let me just say that I still need to read/watch A Clockwork Orange. Anyhoo... It seems like everything seems to have an opposite: light and dark, black and white, good and evil. One can't exist without the other. Where would the conflict be if there wasn't good and evil? Okay, I'm going to get a little nerdy now, but this same conflict is in the Kingdom Hearts video games. Sora (main character) is under the assumption that once he defeats the Heartless, they'll never do any harm again. However, he is told that evil and darkness can never be destroyed, only weakened. What? It ties in with the quote I used, so there.

More serious thoughts...
