Hi fellow physicist!
I have some trouble with finding a valid argument, for why the superposition theorem should be fulfilled for electrical circuits  there only containing resistors, capacitors and inductors  where the sources of the emf. are connected in series. Thanks in advance.

Have you found any valid arguments why superposition shouldn't be valid for such circuits?

Here is a proof. Maybe it will cover the case you are interested in.
