I think house of scorpion is a Technological Control. It shows and tells about the engineering of people and future abilities. Electronics by telling about the machines they use. They are using it by making clones and eejits. "An eejit is a person or animal with an implant in its head" (81) They made eejits work all day long with a little break they even had the horses. The eejits is anyone they don't like or anyone that try to cross the border. After they make that person a eejit they will put (s)he somewhere to work. They even have animal eejits.
The clones that were created by scientist that were paid by the drug lords to make so they don't die. They will take the organs and make a transfer. If they don't die than they can rule their house forever.
