A Clockwork Orange, Option 1
by Luis Caraza
Alex DeLarge has always been a naughty boy. A Clockwork Orange relates the story of an adolescent in the search of a fulfilling life, the most exciting for him. The end of breakfast means the beginning of his day. Raping women, shoplifting bars, consuming milk with added drugs, that is the narrator’s simple day. The teenager lives in a “future” London, as this book was written in 1960 but develops in 1990. The British city is daily thrashed by thugs of different gangs, run by useless governments and infected with reformative ideals. Using a language proper of teens, Alex speaks in a humorously dark manner, in which, from beginning to end, the story is related. DeLarge is daily presented with a common English threat, each which he defends from properly. But, what if he didn’t have the ability to decide? What would happen if he transformed into a clockwork orange, unable to decide for himself?
“A Clockwork Orange” is set in a fictional future London. Women no longer have any self-appreciation and change their bodies in every way they can: surgeries, wigs, and ridiculously high amounts of clothing. They spend the evening at record shops, sucking on penis-shaped popsicles. Men, instead of sucking on vagina-shaped popsicles, rape female humans, regardless of their age. Surviving is no easy task for them, with the government taking away security and enlisting criminals as their authorities. Prisons are no more enslavement facilities, but rather torture worlds. The homeless will not stop for a pound or two, but will rather beat you and rob all you own. The story’s humble narrator, a man of sorts, is tackled daily by these threats as men, so he actually imposes the dangers sometimes.
In the first half of the novel, Alex DeLarge experiences life’s dangers as a pleasure for him. He beats thugs and hobos, rapes women, old and young and drinks milk, infused with drugs of every kind. Ludwig van, as he calls Beethoven, is his only idol. As Alex gets home every night he does three things: open his money drawer, where he deposits all his day’s work, plays with Basil his python, and hears “old Ludwig van”. The teenager does not have any restraints, any remorse, any regrets, he lives with all his might, with nothing to stop him. He fears nothing and is haunted by nobody. The protagonist has no limits and every day he’ll push them to a longer extent, with nothing to say otherwise.
When the narrator’s age got to 15, the police caught him. Alex DeLarge was sent to prison without squealing no or but. Every Sunday he attended to a mandatory mass, in which he was particularly interested, just not in the way you and me are. The Bible was his favorite book now as he imagined himself whipping Jesus in the cross, cutting the throats of Christians, and eating grapes from naked slave women. The violent boy knew he had to get out of jail, as he longed for the enjoyment of violence. He enlisted into the Ludovico Technique, a process in which he would be quickly dumped into the outside world. However, little did he know of what was going to become of him. As DeLarge entered his first Ludovico session, metal clamps were inserted into his eyes so that he could not get them shut. Various violent films he saw in a cinema, still with the metal clamps on. He went on and on until it was physically painful for him. A torture it was. Days went on and sessions had still to be applied, until one day they let him out. Alex was now a clockwork orange, a man unable to choose for himself. Every time he thought, let alone do something evil or perverse, he was struck with physical pain. The motion pictures featured the 9th Symphony by Beethoven, his favorite song. However, now he could not bear to hear it, as it made him sick and full of suicidal thoughts. When he was reinstated into society, Alex was kicked out of his own house, beat up, drowned and thrown out of a hotel window for the sole fact of being unable to defend himself.
“A man ceases to be a man when he is unable to choose for himself,” The pastor, pg. 134. That was Alex’s true dilemma. He wanted to be reformed, he wanted to be changed, but he never thought he would end up worse than he was before. In a dark, perilous city, total kindness is never acceptable. Anywhere in the world, clockwork humans, (orange is the equal of human in Latin), are not acceptable. If we creatures loose our capacity to decide, we are left deprived of our humanity. At the conclusion of the final chapter, DeLarge is imposed again with the ability to choose. He could settle down, have a family, or go back to his thuggish years. In the story’s obscure setting, each would do, because let me tell you, there is no evil without kindness and no kindness without evil.
Calavera a Darío
Por Luis Caraza
Flaca quería leer,
Pues a Darío buscó.
Cuando él la huesuda vio,
A Xalapa fue a correr.
Como luchas el fue a ver,
Solo el Asmochas vio el smog,
El salchicha escribió su blog.
Darío regresó a clases,
Enseñaba de eses y heces.
La flaca se quedó el dog.
Hola a todos. Mi nombre es Plom, y soy un diploma, jeje. Todos en el cuarto de Luis me envidian, menos mis amigos los otros diplomas, aunque yo soy mejor que ellos… mucho mejor. Debajo de mi están las firmas de dos personas muy importantes, jeje, lo que me hace mucho más importante. Todas las chicas están detrás de mí, pero yo no tengo tiempo para eso. Valgo demasiado y sé demasiado como para que me estén manoseando. Soy como un libro, pero mas te vale que me juzgues por mi portada, jeje. Estoy enmarcado, un privilegio que solo los mejores se pueden dar. Lo mejor es que cada día que Luis se levanta, me ve con tanto orgullo que hasta yo siento emoción. Sin embargo, la emoción y los sentimientos son para los debiles. Sólo existe el orgullo, jeje. Bueno, demasiado por hoy. Estoy exhausto. Buenas noches, jeje.
Cuando Luis se aburrio esa noche del ocho de julio, nací yo. Soy un post de Facebook, llamado tambien comentario, status o como sea. Era tan grande (1024 caracteres) que Facebook no le permitia a Luis publicarme. Asi que Luis tuvo la gran idea de dividirme en cuatro partes. Una vez publicado, encontre lo aburrido que era el mundo. Naces y luego no haces nada. Te quedas ahí en el muro tratando de hacer que alguien te vea. Si tienes suerte puedes llegar a tener hasta 20 comentarios. Yo no. Acabo de ser publicado, asi que puede que tenga mas comentarios después. Los posts famosos llegan a tener cientos de comentarios. Son tantos que tienes que picarle constantemente a “Ver Más” para observar todos los comentarios. Comentan personas de todo el mundo. Desde Corea hasta Francia. Mis sueños son conseguir más comentarios que cualquier otro status en el muro de Luis. Bueno me voy a dormir, a ver si mañana tengo uno o dos comentarios.
Tulmp was startled at the look of such an amazing contraption, something he had never seen before. IT was beyond his imagination, beyond his wildest dreams. IT was a bonfire. Tulmp, as he was called among his fellow tribe members, lived in the Stone Age, an age of slow development and deep connections with nature. As it was natural, the image of a bonfire would never be imagined about, there was no such thing as fire. Their most complex technology consisted of sticks and stones held together by animal skin. Their best strategy was the use of brute force. These men and women were not dumb, on the contrary, they were superbly intelligent. They just had lots to find out. Tulmp was considered one of the wisest men in his tribe. He invented things, and for that the tribesmen called him Tulmp, for the sound his tools made when he worked on a new product. Tulmp was also a reflective fellow. He knew that once he looked back at his first inventions, he would be amazed at how much he had learned.
One day, Tulmp went out for his everyday morning stroll. As one of the wisest men in his tribe, he knew that exercise was vital to a long and prosper life.
La felicidad en mi vida se presenta cuando cosas buenas me pasan. Esto puede ser un 10 en un examen o tarea, una muy buena comida, una adquisición importante que sé que me va a hacer bien o simplemente una sonrisa. La felicidad también me llega con el amor o con el humor, que me hace reír y sentirme bien. Todo esto es parte de ser feliz para mi. Oír mi canción favorita, estar con mis mejores amigos, comer mi comida favorita… Todo esto me hace feliz en mi vida cotidiana.

The American Revolution As You Have Never Seen It
By Luis Caraza, 18/2/2010
You know how it ends, find out how it began. Many of us know the American Revolution for its famous outcome, as the rebels won. Anyway, very few know the real causes, the details and the secrets nobody knew. For a heads-up, The American Revolution, or AR as we are going to call it from now on, was a conflict between the crown of England and the rebels in the 13 Colonies, in this case the patriots. The war took place in the British 13 Colonies, around the 1700s. Find out what happened, how everything began, the details and the juicy secrets of the AR.
Many are the causes for the AR, but the first is the French and Indian War, which took place from 1754 to 1763. More than 11,100 British soldiers died in the war, ammo was required and used in large quantities, and many resources were needed for the war to end. This all meant one thing and one thing only: money. In 1763, when the war ended, the British Empire decided to tax the 13 Colonies to pay off the debts. Charles Townshend, an influential citizen of Great Britain, proposed the Townshend Acts. Parliament was persuaded, and the Townshend Acts took place. In 1767, the colonists were taxed for every single good imported from Great Britain. For the first time in the 13 Colonies, the British government imposed its law onto the colonists. Some were in favor others weren’t, therefore dividing the colonists into two groups: the loyalists, who kneeled before the crown of Britain, and the Patriots, who firmly opposed the tyranny. Before all this controversy, even before the French & Indian War, the colonists were left alone by the British government to govern themselves. There was an evident air of peace in the eastern coast of what is now the United States of America, formed after this revolution.
The AR´s causes were not only because of taxes, but also because of the choices of the king, who did not accept colonists into Parliament. King George, the king of Great Britain, put up the Royal Proclamation Line of 1763, which forced the colonists to stay east of the it and Native Americans west of it to stop them from fighting with the Native Americans. King George knew this had to stop “the costly warfare” between the colonists and Native Americans. Colonists, however, grew angry because they were getting, after all, crowded. When King George saw that his spending wasn’t getting much better, he decided to accept George Grenville’s Stamp Act. The stamp act required colonists to buy a stamp for every piece of paper they bought. The colonists boycotted, and the king repealed the tax. The colonists weren’t relieved anyway; they had not been taken into count to approve or disapprove the taxes that were imposed to them. The colonists were angry for taxation without representation. For Parliament, colonists were completely and undoubtedly mute.
In 1770, King George put Lord North as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Lord North took out the Townshend Acts, but left the famous Tea Act, which put a tax on tea but also monopolized it, forcing colonists to buy it. This caused plenty of controversy and in 1773, the patriots crossed the line with the Boston Tea Party. 30 to 130 Boston Patriots dressed as Mohawks dumped 342 chests of fine English tea into the Boston Harbor. The costs of the dumped tea ranged from 90, 000 to 100,000 English pounds. King George and Lord North grew mad for the colonist’s behavior in Boston, and therefore passed the Intolerable Acts. The Coercive Acts, like they were also called, were a set of laws imposed on the 13 Colonies, and were named after their severity. The first one, called the Boston Port Act, closed the Boston Harbor until the East India Trading Company paid off the cost of the dumped tea, and after the king had implied that order was brought back. The second was called “The Massachusetts Government Act” and it stated that the state was completely under control of the British Government. The Administration of Justice Act, which was the third intolerable act, stated that British soldiers or authorities had to be trialed in Great Britain. The fourth was the Quartering Act, and it gave soldiers the right to get into your house and ask for a bed, food and even clothes. The fifth and last of the intolerable acts was called “The Quebec Act” and it extended Quebec’s boundaries, making the Colonies even littler. It also took made Protestants living in Quebec convert into the Roman Catholic religion. The Intolerable Acts, in my opinion, were the most important cause of the AR.
On April 4th, 1775, General Thomas Gage, governor of Massachusetts received the news that the rebels had an armory hidden in Concord, and he was to disarm and capture them. Well before Gage had received the news, Margaret Gage, Gage’s wife, informed Paul Revere and William Dawes of her husband’s mission. Dawes and Revere rode horseback all night and reached Lexington. There, they both warned every house and corner that the lobsters were coming. Right away did the rebel officials knew the British were aiming for Concord. Revere and Dawes rode again to Concord and warned the rebel officials that the British were coming for the ammunition. They hid the weapons, and prepared for combat. The battle first broke out at Lexington. Nobody knows where the first shot came from, but it is as famous as Michael Jackson. The shot heard ´round the world, as it is called, was the moment when The American Revolutionary War started for real this time. Rebel troops in Lexington were completely killed, for the British troops were four times more than the rebels. However, as the devils approached Concord, their luck drained away. They desperately looked for any type of armory, but found nothing thanks to the cleverness of the patriot locals. The rebel troops had hid meanwhile, but as they saw smoke rising from the town center, they raced upon the British. The Rebel troops drove the Lobsterbacks out of Concord, and won the battle. The American Revolutionary War had started.
The people of the 13 colonies decided to call up the first Continental Congress to put things in the table and force England to stop. Delegates from the 13 Colonies met, and agreed to boycott all of the goods imported from England. They also agreed to stop sending anything to England if the Intolerable Acts were not repealed. They did it, and goods imported from England dropped by 97 percent. They met again in May 10th, 1775, but the war had already begun. In the meeting, the delegates arranged strategies, armies and weapons as well as leaders. Their faction was called “The Continental Army”. The delegates chose George Washington as the leader of the American Army. The Second Continental Congress also succeeded with making a petition, in which it was formally asked to King George to agree on peace. The Olive Branch Petition, as it was called, was turned down by the king. In search of an alternative, the delegates drafted a declaration… Ben Franklin drafted the first Declaration of Independence, followed by Thomas Jefferson, who rewrote it on July 4th, 1776. The Declaration stated that the 13 Colonies, originally British, no longer belonged to the crown of Great Britain. They were now independent states, called “The United States of America”.
The war followed with various consequential battles, alliances, defeats and victories. The Spanish, French and Native Americans took a stand against the British, and as the old riddle says “The enemy of my enemy is my friend”, alliances grew. The British Empire went from the biggest and best well-trained army in the world to an absent-mindedly controlled bunch of men in red uniforms. The war turned itself into a game of cat and mouse, where for the first time the mouse was originally cleverer than the cat. The Continental Army drove the British Army into Yorktown, where the Lobsterbacks were sieged from the North, the West, South and East by a Franco-American force of 17,000 men. General Charles Cornwallis surrendered along with his now outnumbered 7,000 troops to George Washington, leader of the Continental Army.
With his defeat, King George lost all of his power in Parliament, and became basically nothing but a rich man. Lord North resigned in 1782, leaving behind him his power as the Prime Minister. On September 3rd, 1783, the delegates of the United States of America and those of Great Britain signed the Treaty of Paris, officially putting an end on the American Revolutionary War. Among the delegates who signed the peace treaty were Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, John Jay and David Hartley. Afterwards, George Washington was named “President of the United States of America”. Just like any other President, he would have to attend to all of the citizen’s suggestions, avoid conflicts, keep up with problems, destroy walls, make peace and keep writing the History that today binds us all in a veil of future.
