Itachi was a true shinobi. He sacrificed his own life in order to protect the ones he loved. He chose the village over himself. He is a symbol for true heroism.
Why did the Uchiha clan revolt against the village?
The real reason for the revolt was the separating them from the village. The Uchiha along with the Senju clan were the original founders of Konoha. But the foundation was laid by Uchiha Madara and Hashirama Senju, the first Hokage of Konoha. Other clans were later asked to join them since two of the biggest clans were ready to form an alliance, which was truly a remarkable feat in the age of war. The Uchiha clan were continously monitored and was tasked with the police force by Tobirama Senju.
The village council, Hokage and the Root division were made up of members from Tobirama’s original squad and carried out of date ideas. Danzo wanted to take control of Kurama, it is one of the reasons why he had so many sharingans. In order to accomplish that he needed many sharingans, so he naturally asked Itachi to kill the Uchiha clan also invoking their hate.
Danzo had ties to every top villain including Orochimaru and Obito( you’ll see them in the later part of the series). Deceitfully Danzo achieved his goals and even went on to implant Hashirama’s cells into his body in order to obtain the Rinnegan. He was the one real villain who hid behind the shadows and played all the games until he was taken down by Sasuke.
In order to achieve his eternal dream Danzo played the right cards. He started monitoring the Uchiha. Not to forget he even went on to blame the Uchiha for the Kurama incident, thus spreading hate about the Uchiha clan. The Uchiha clan started despising the village elders.
They hated the fact that they were being tossed and bossed around by villagers. They hated the fact that despite being the original founders of Konoha, they are being treated like shit. Therefore, the leader of the Uchiha clan Fugaku Uchiha took it upon himself and united the whole Uchiha clan. He along with the clan were planning to defeat the village elders and take control over the village.
If you look at things objectively it makes sense that the Uchiha clan were revolting. After all they weren’t the ones who messed things up. It was Danzo and his fucking crew who had no ideology other than killing and going emotionless. It is this what made Konoha a sacrificial piece.
Itachi was a just a pawn in Danzo’s board. He had no control and no say in everything and anything. He was struck between the love from his family and his village. But ultimately chose the village since it involved innocent people who had no ties whatsoever. The man is a legend and in all regard must be appreciated for what he is. So the next time you call someone name, remember everyone has a past they can’t forget.
