Lost 'A Clockwork Orange' sequel discovered in author's archives

A previously undiscovered "sequel" to Anthony Burgess' dystopian cult classic "A Clockwork Orange" has been found among the author's archives.

In the unfinished "The Clockwork Condition," the author responds to the moral panic caused by Stanley Kubrick's film adaptation of his most-famous novel, which had come out just weeks before.

The nonfiction work, which also includes a series of philosophical thoughts on the human condition, runs to around 200 typewritten pages, and features several handwritten notes. It had been left for decades among in his abandoned home in Bracciano, Italy, before being boxed up after his death in 1993 and sent to the International Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester, England, alongside several other works and possessions.

"It's given us more detail about a whole range of thoughts and feelings he had about culture, in the immediate aftermath of the film having come out," Biswell added.

Armed vigilantes apprehend hundreds of asylum seekers near Mexican border

Armed vigilantes apprehend hundreds of asylum seekers near Mexican border

Members of a heavily-armed group of vigilantes calling themselves the United Constitutional Patriots intercepted and apprehended hundreds of asylum seekers this week, despite having no authority to do so.

One of the men filmed while others took the asylum seekers, including children, into custody on Tuesday night. For the past two months, the group has camped out in the desert near the town of Sunland Park, on the border between New Mexico and the Mexican state of Chihuahua.

A Customs and Border Protection (CBP) official told ThinkProgress that while the agency welcomes community assistance, it does not condone vigilante groups taking border enforcement into their own hands.

Were just Americans, Benvie said. Were veterans, were ex-law enforcement, were people who care about the over-strained Border Patrol. As to why the group was so heavily armed, Benvie contended that there was danger that went along with their patrols, since they were supposedly interfering with cartel-run trafficking.

These groups have been at the border for MONTHS yet CBP welcomes community assistance, it does not condone vigilante groups taking border enforcement into their own hands.

Scary shit that this is allowed to transpire with impunity...
