Thematic Subjects (minimium of 3)1) Subject: Free WillThematic Statements: The ability to choose allows humanity to exist.In other words, taking away the ability to determine their choice gives no meaning to their pre-decided decision. This means that doing good without a choice is meaningless.2) Subject: GovernmentThematic Statements: By oppressing the people with laws and codes, it takes away the individuality of the people.  It is expressed throughout the book that the government was controlling and only cared for the welfare of the society rather than the individuals of the society. 3) Subject: MoralityThematic Statements: In order to do a good deed, one must have the intentions in order to have meaning.This is one of the most controversial claim because Alex represent the entity of evil therefore it only seems fair that he is forced to only act good. However, the book shows this is inhumane because it not only takes away the morality from doing good, but it drives the protagonist to suicide.
