A Clockwork Orange Turns 40 but Still Presents Questions

Adam Chandler’s article from the Atlantic, ‘A Clockwork Orange’ Strikes 40, refers to the novel & film A Clockwork Orange. As science progresses, the questions that it presents remain. Is it moral to take away free will from someone who is/has been violent? Is the main character Alex a villain or tragic hero? What is the proper use of violence in media and social critique?

Of course, you can find Kubrick’s 1972 film and Anthony Burgess’ 1962 novel in the MVCC Library.
