Answer by Stimpson J. Cat
Well that’s pretty much the theme of the whole movie. Alex was conditioned to get sick at the thought of violence. In the process, the therapists also destroyed his love of classical music.

Great movie though. Saw it about 15 times.

    Have you ever actually seen the movie? If you had, I don’t think you’d be asking this question… How could you NOT apply it to Alex, it’s basically the whole movie…
