Count  Dracula  and  Doctor  Frankenstein

“Count Dracula” and “Doctor Frankenstein” are modern literary examples of how the childish vision of life may be superimposed on the possibilities of true and mature humanity. 
Each of these archetypal characters is made to appear evil, necessarily doomed by his primal “sin.” 
Thus, each must die or fail in order to satisfy the childish vision of the way the world works.
“Doctor Frankenstein” is simply our human obligation to accept responsibility for our individual lives, the life process, the Life-Force, the bodily structures, and the natural domain. 


But he and his monster are made to suffer and fail, 
like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, 
as if the presumption of such responsibility were an offense 
rather than a natural and sacred obligation.

Just so, “Count Dracula” is simply our human obligation to accept responsibility for the sexual process and the higher, truly human, or ecstatic and regenerative purpose of both sexuality and the living mechanisms of personal life. 
But he is made to appear as the Incarnation of Evil, the Devil, the Anti-Christ, so that he must be suppressed and destroyed.
The problem is that “Doctor Frankenstein” and “Count Dracula” are each even today, in the person of each human individual, suppressed, mutilated, and made a scapegoat through the lies of childish, irresponsible, and subhuman views of life. 


The literary characters and stories themselves 
belong only to the realm of amusing and terrifying fairy tales. 

But the significance of these tales is in the neurosis of modern human societies, which still support and to a degree depend upon the subhuman masses, controlled by antisexual taboos and manipulated by fears of responsibility for great matters in general. 
But if the human race is not permitted to rise up in the scale of evolution, the masses and their parental controllers will eventually destroy one another.
