Quickly on a realization

On my 'Masters of Sex Being a Freudian Masterpiece' I mention that A Clockwork Orange is a interesting novel showing the contrast 'tween Hobbsian and Freudian versions of behavior modification.  And though while this still holds up I think it also can be used to show the philosophy of Augestine - Alex being the perfect example of "sinful willfullness."  Of course as a Materialist and Hard Determinist I disagree with Burgess about free will and "evil," but I do think that he puts that point-of-view across quite well, or at-least from how I remember the book from reading it four or more years ago.
