I agree with both of your posts. This is completely going off on a tangent here but I just came across this really cool novel that just came out in paperback: Renfield Slave of Dracula by Barbara Hambly. The link is below. I just started reading it and it pretty much confirms both of your opinions on Renfield.
Any of you Dracula fans out there looking for something new should check this out if it sounds appealing to you...

When Renfield asks Dr. Seward, in an erudite moment and in front of Seward's friends, to release him before he does something he regrets, is there anything he could have said or done by then that would have convinced Dr. Seward to let him go? I personally doubt it, which is unfortunate because Renfield's fears were justified that time.

PS- The law, also centered on facts and legal precedent, can keep civilization perhaps less "civilized" or not much better than jackals, wolves or vultures. Dracula's vessel was possibly subject to salvage law, or the laws of Admiralty, for example.

PS-Science continues to struggle with both words in the scientific method, with its hypotheses, observations, conclusions, etc. etc.

PS- So, for example, someone else's love could become my duty, and hopefully, with a wave of my hands, like Dracula's driver, I hope to dispel all forces which might consume me. Possibly like the force of an atom bomb. But that's too strong. I would settle for Doug Henning or David Copperfield, as examples- but not necessarily in that order, but maybe...

Has there been debate about the state of Texas possibly not joining the union? That is, if Britain were allowed to render aid to the territory or pursue her own interests, contrary to the the Monroe doctrine, it might stand on its own today. It also might have a little more independence due to a "treaty of annexation."
