I find a personal bit of humor in whole idea about "in order for everyone to be winners and there to be no losers only I can win and everyone else has to lose."
I get the outside reasoning behind it but damn if the way that sounds in my head doesn't illicit a chuckle.
Honestly.....the psychologist in me keeps thinking about what I learned about the problems with telling EVERYONE THEY DID GREAT. It devalues praise and handwork when everyone is a winner despite their personal efforts.
Tobito said "I'll make you Hokage" to Naruto and we know that Naruto has wanted to be Hokage and worked his ass off for it, but random Joe off the street wanted to be Hokage but was New York style lazy and ended up Joe Random Street Guy instead. For JRSG to be a winner he is gonna be Hokage as well despite the fact that he was a loser.
So now there's two hokage's.....one that gave everything, and one that gave nothing. But both are winners. Just one happened to be rewarded for his laziness. And that is commentary on the Great Madara. He's literally given up on the world to the point where he sees no amount of hard work being able to EVER change anything. It'd be just too much effort to work that hard because people are people.
Just give everyone what they want, all the time with no real gratification of reward, just reward.
Why even bother working hard at making people get along, it's easier to....mind control everyone.
But then...this all goes into the "global reality manipulation via illusion" vs "personal eternal illusion" discussion that I find very interesting.
