My on going thesis troubles

Inspiration is hard to capture and even harder to expect. I expect that it would happen eventually but eventually I’ll run out of time so I figured the best I could do was change locations and begin again with what I have and hope to get it done eventually. Alan Moore and Ludwig Wittgenstein combined to make my ease into the world of graduate school graduate easy. I’m starting with Wittgenstein to see where I can go with his theories on good and grammar and ease that into a theory of literature where the villains are no longer men who simply do bad things, but men who seek easy answers from complex criteria. Evil is now the simplification of the world and good is the understanding and the movement towards complexity.
For Alan Moore, Watchmen in particular, this would mean that Ozymandias, Rorschach, the Comedian, the first Nite Owl, the Silk Spectre (both of them), are all villains and the second Nite Owl, Dr. Manhattan, Bernard the newspaper salesman, and the reader are all heroes because they all push for complication and refuse easy answers. But we’re getting lost in the general, must get to the specifics. First Wittgenstein.
