Son of Satan Resume

Charles Bukowski has written this short story (Son of Satan). Charles Bukowski was a very famous writer and was famous for describing the atmosphere in L.A., which is why I think the story takes place in L.A. It takes place in the poor part of L.A for the reason that the main character on page 13 “walks in the bedroom and sits on the edge of the bed and looks down at his cheap shoes”. They cannot afford good shoes, so the story takes place in the poor area.
That is also why it seems to me that Charles is the main character in this short story. I ponder this is something he has experienced and then have chosen to write about, to tell such a serious story. But Charles Bukowski is also very famous for his very strange stories so it could be both things. But I believe it is something Charles has experienced.
And the environment leads us up to the themes. I think there are a lot of themes in this story. But one of the themes is to tell how a 12 years old, who is living in a poor neighborhood and smoke cigarettes with his friends is thinking and how he is behaving. The reason of the boys’ behavior could have something to do with the social heritage and because of the fact that there is no one to look after the three boys. In my view the main themes are to tell that kids who lives in a poor area and no family to say what is right and what is wrong is most likely to become a “Son of Satan”.
Our narrator in this story is a first person narrator. We do not know what our first person’s name is (I believe it is Charles). The relationship between the boys is strange after the fleeing of Morgan and Hass, leaving our lead character to himself, after the hanging of Simpsons.
So they can have fun with each other and all the time try to impress one another, but when there are problems they do not stand behind each other’s back and help each other. Instead they are left alone to deal with the problems themselves. And as the narrator writes, they cannot show weakness, as it would make them look weak. Which leads to group pressure as another theme.
The main character is unanimous, but he cannot say he is unanimous, as it seems to that will make him look weak. So he do not want to hang him, but if he do Morgan and Hass still want to be friends with him as they consider him as cool.
The story is ending with the surviving of Simpsons, but the dad finds Simpson and now he is screaming at him (the main character) and he is hiding himself under the bed. He suddenly starts to laugh of panic, which makes the dad scream, “You are surely the Son of Satan, you are not my son”. Which is also why the short story is called Son of Satan. There is something wrong with our main character, he could be mentally unstable. I suppose it could be an affect of his surroundings and the environment he lives in. The eternal struggle to not appear weak and end up as a loner could also be an affect. So you could say it is a mix of different factors.

The focus of the millennium is not on Satan as some would think. The central focus, however, is on the savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Christ will bind Satan for 1000 years so that He can deal with sin perpetrated on the earth among the inhabitants of the earth. Then Satan will be “turned loose for a little while” and he will deceive the hearts of many believers who will turn to him rather than God. The war of all wars will be fought and the rapture will come. Then, “after these things” Christ will leave heaven and come to earth a second time to judge sin and save the lost. He will bring with Him those who have been beheaded and those that persevered in Him to help judge the world. The Rapture: Rapture is a term......

Good Shit

...May 10, 1886 in Sitio Calzada, Barrio Tipas, Taguig, Rizal province. His father fished and farmed a small plot of land with Felix as his constant aide. Even at a young age, he seemed to have shown leadership qualities that were most useful to him later. He was, one author says, considered a “champion of and for, Barrio Calzada Youth”. Another author remarked on his “strong aversion for defeat” and his “abhorrence of taking directions from others”. He wanted “to lead, to be on top”. His formal schooling appears limited. He obtained his “three Rs”1 training from a Maestro Cario (Macario Ocampo) in Tipas. Indicators point to his reaching the equivalent of a second or third grade education by the time of the Revolution2. He did not resume formal schooling until he went to Bible school as a young adult. Like all children of devout Roman Catholic mothers during these times, his religious instructions had begun early. His mother was a church “manang”,3 attending church services at every opportunity. Felix was ten when he lost his father. His mother remarried but was soon re-widowed. His early life was hard. As the eldest child, he had to help earn the family’s living. These conditions of his...

Euromediterranean Geopolitics

...Islamisme : l’erreur stratégique américaine L’alternative islamiste aux régimes autoritaires arabes devient une option sérieuse pour la diplomatie américaine dès la fin de la première guerre du Golfe. Aussi bien au niveau de leurs chancelleries qu’à travers leur réflexion stratégique , les Etats Unis sont arrivés à la conclusion que les courants religieux dans les pays arabes seraient, à l’avenir, l’incarnation d’une légitimité populaire qui leur ferait inéluctablement conquérir le pouvoir politique .Cette conviction trouve son argumentaire dans les origines mêmes de la société américaine fondée sur un corpus de principes panachant éthique religieuse, démocratie libérale et conservatisme moral .Les USA considèrent, en effet , qu’ils peuvent , non seulement co-exister, mais encourager « une identité musulmane positive , pro- occidentale et pacifique ». La marche triomphale des néo-islamistes turcs vers le pouvoir allait définitivement faire taire les plus récalcitrants . Parmi ces derniers figure S.Huntington qui estimait que par un « paradoxe démocratique » le suffrage universel ne pouvait porter au pouvoir que des forces fondamentalistes hostiles aux Etats Unis . En réalité , le résultat du suffrage universel n’est que le reflet de la désastreuse image de marque des Etats Unis dans le monde arabo - musulman et cela quelle que soit la forme du régime en place .Les révolutions qui ont récemment eu lieu dans certains pays arabes, en libérant certaines forces......

La CuestióN Criminal

...La cuestión criminal 1 Eugenio Raúl Zaffaroni Suplemento especial de PáginaI 2 1 1. La academia, los medios y los muertos En cualquier lugar de la superficie de este planeta se habla de la cuestión criminal. Es casi lo único de que se habla –en competencia con el fútbol, que es arte complejo–, mientras pocos parecen darse cuenta de que molestamos demasiado al planeta y le podemos provocar un estornudo que nos proyecte violentamente a quién sabe dónde (por no usar alguna expresión poco académica). Se habla, se dice, con ese se impersonal del palabrerío. Y lo más curioso es que casi todos creen tener la solución o, por lo menos, emiten opiniones. Claro que se habla al compás de juicios asertivos en tono sentenciador emitidos por los medios masivos de comunicación, a veces en manos de grandes corporaciones transnacionales enredadas con otras que les disputan el poder a los Estados bastante impotentes del mundo globalizado. Es indispensable escuchar lo que se habla para no quedar soliloqueando, como suele pasar en el mundo académico. Y en nuestro país y en los otros por los que a veces me desplazo se habla de la cuestión criminal como de un problema local. Las soluciones pasan por condenar a uno u otro personaje o institución, pero siempre hablando de un problema local, nacional, provincial, a veces casi municipal. Pocos se dan cuenta de que se trata de una cuestión mundial, en la que se está jugando el meollo más profundo de la forma futura de convivencia e incluso quizá del...

Corinthians

...1CORINTHIANS 1:1-2 (A) When was the church at Corinth founded? converts (CP Jn 4:1-2). It is the gospel that saves not baptism (CP Ro 1:16; 10:17; 1Cor 1:21; 4:15; 15:1-2; Jas 1:18, 21; 1Pe 1:23-25). Baptism signifies that one is saved (CP 1Pe 3:18-21). Paul merely said what he did about baptism because the Corinthian church was being split by factions arguing over their preference of spiritual leaders, and Paul did not intend to baptise a faction around himself (CP 1Cor 1:10-17). This is also a lesson for the contemporary church: Christians must always centre their loyalty, love and devotion upon God and His word, not on individual leaders. No individual leader is to be the focus of Christian fellowship, otherwise the cross of Christ is made void – it cannot accomplish its purpose. (See also comments on 1Cor 3:8-11, 3:16-17 (A), 3:16-17 (B), 3:18-20). 1:18 Are we already saved as the KJV implies here, or are we being saved, as other versions teach? The church at Corinth was founded by Paul during his second Apostolic mission journey recorded in Ac 15:40 – 18:22 (CP Ac 18:1-21). See also comments on Ac 18:22. (B) Where was Paul when he wrote this Epistle? Paul was in Ephesus. He wrote this Epistle at the close of his three years stay in Ephesus during his third Apostolic mission journey recorded in Acts 18:23 – 21:17 (CP Ac 20:31-38 with 1Cor 16:8-9, 19) See also comments on Ac 18:23. 1:8 What does the phrase “In the day of our Lord Jesus Christ” refer to here?

Fortunately, God has also given a provision for hope to those who are considered to be “unreached” by the Gospel. It is through the command issued to his disciples in Matthew 28:19, “go ye therefore and teach all nations,” that Christians today can literally change the world by taking the gospel to all four corners of the earth. ...

Religion

...| Islamic philosophyOLIVER LEAMAN | | | | Islamic philosophyIslamic philosophy may be defined in a number of different ways, but the perspective taken here is that it represents the style of philosophy produced within the framework of Islamic culture. This description does not suggest that it is necessarily concerned with religious issues, nor even that it is exclusively produced by Muslims (see Islam, concept of philosophy in).1 The early years of Islamic philosophyIslamic philosophy is intimately connected with Greek philosophy, although this is a relationship which can be exaggerated. Theoretical questions were raised right from the beginning of Islam, questions which could to a certain extent be answered by reference to Islamic texts such as the Qur’an, the practices of the community and the traditional sayings of the Prophet and his Companions. On this initial basis a whole range of what came to be known as the Islamic sciences came to be produced, and these consisted largely of religious law, the Arabic language and forms of theology which represented differing understandings of Islam.The early conquests of the Muslims brought them into close contact with centres of civilization heavily influenced by Christianity and Judaism, and also by Greek culture. Many rulers wished to understand and use the Greek forms of knowledge, some practical and some theoretical, and a large translation project started which saw official support for the assimilation of Greek culture......
