Is Good vs. Evil the theme of Sex and Violence?

You know how so many people have complained about the majority of pop fiction being dominated by sex or violence? Well The Carpenter of Auguliere is based on neither. Thatís right, itís a clean-cut story of the struggles of people, power and politics; the classic and ultimate domain of good vs. evil. Itís the fantasyland where good always triumphs over evil or so we are told. Does it really? Do we ever, fully succeed to squelch evil by allowing good to rise up over it? Or do we undermine the currents of justice, leaving evil an out to some day rise again? All the great tragedies utilize this quirk, from the greatest of classics like Star Wars, and Little House of Horrors, to the innocuous Little House on the Prairie.That is the point of a work of fiction, to leave a smoking gun, a little spark, a seed left over from some evil event, as in The Blob, to return and rule over good once again.Yet, it is sex and violence that sells. People always complain about morals and still, they want to see bloodshed. That is the nature of things. People still want the gladiator. So, should I rescind my beliefs and write a thriller with the full-fledged theme of sex and violence as an end in itself? First, read The Carpenter of Auguliere and then let me know what you think.
