what is given?? the goal?? i think it doesnt matter, if u'r parents wanted u to be a doctor, and u accept the goal and actually like it also it still become u'r goal also...

i want to ask, if shikamaru never learn from asuma to protect the next generation will he do it?? isnt that goal is also a given?? or maybe u think if the goal is good and society accept it it become a true goal but if it wasnt accepted by the society it isnt??? for me thats cheating....
yeah, I don't think my opinion will change anything, but it's my opinion.
my point is that he is like a kid that being toyed by anyone for any reason, itachi's for protecting, madara for revenge, and maybe later we'll see more.
i don't see it's a matter whether or not society accept it.
look at orochimaru, I am not his fan, but his goal is really mad, call for destruction, yet it's his own thought that make him strong. and why we can argue that he fail to get to his ambition? because he never will, no one never will, except maybe for pain. orochimaru's ambition is limitless. that's why
