Rogozhin says that he is no longer angry with Myshkin and that he believes what the prince say's but that when Myshkin is absent, doubts begin to build. And last I wonder where do the disabled fit into these thoughts today? Why then would it have taken such a struggle for them to acquire these rights?

Back at the landing, Myshkin wishes to embrace Rogozhin but Rogozhin demurs, assuring his new brother that he won't murder him for his watch.

Perhaps, if there is such a place, we could see the true potential of the disabled.
