When you were a child, whatever you saw, whatever you experienced became your today’s belief. Whatever your parents and teachers taught you will now reflect in your personality.
“Kids who have never seen peace and kids who have never seen war have different values! Those who stand at the top determine what’s wrong and what’s right!”
And that’s where the most fragile thing comes. why kids are easy to manipulate?
Because a kid knows nothing about this world, whatever you teach him/her, he/she will accept it and he/she will create his belief & justice accordingly. and the scariest thing is they won’t change it.
where the adults are more stubborn about their beliefs, at the same time kids are vulnerable to acceptance of a new belief.
when you are a child (around 8 to 15 yrs), what you are doing is making your beliefs. And that’s exactly what happens in naruto. most of them who were being manipulated are either taught something bad or saw something harsh. For a kid it is too much to take. he/she is very pure and one can manipulate them very easily.
Manipulation of Sasuke Uchiha
Eyes that can see every move but still couldn’t protect you against hate.
Sasuke was around 13 when he saw his whole clan massacred and his brother asked him to hate. later he found out itachi was a sacrifice.
When Itachi died and Sasuke’s world turned blank was the time when Obito can draw anything on that blank sheet of canvas and Sasuke ended up being manipulated by Obito.
Maniulation of Obito Uchiha
Obito was also around 13 when he saw the girl he loved die and the one who killed her was his teammate.
At the time when he had no one to love, no one to cry his heart out is where Madara came. Madara gave him a New Light – The Darkness of Tsukuyomi, where Obito can meet Rin again. and at the time he found out the truth, it was too late to realise.
Manipulation of Madara Uchiha
All Madara was taught was racism between the Great clans – Senju and Uchiha, and it became his belief that no one will accept him & his clan because of the Superiority of Sharingan.
His belief became so stubborn that even after he became old and join hands with Hashirama, He backed off and chose the cloudy and dizzy path that he believes to be the truth to be enjoyed & justified.
This is what I observed throughout the whole Naruto series and I thought it is worth to share.
