The ninja system - "there can be no peace or order"
Sorry if this has already been discussed - couldn't see it immediately.
We've heard Pain's view of the ninja system which is quite a negative vew - he is embittered by the pain it causes but seems to believe that a large dose of pain will allow small pockets of peace to exist for limited periods of time. He also represented the small country against a much stronger force in Konoha which caused pain even through its desire to do good.
Naruto, even in his inexperience of war, acknowledges that peace is not an easy goal to obtain and recognises Pain's argument about a cycle of hatred and revenge caused through the name of justice.
Minato now appears and says that "maybe" as long as the ninja system exists there can be no peace or order.
So what now for the ultimate end of the manga? Does Naruto have to prove that he is greater tha his father and prove that the ninja system can exist with peace and order or will it all come to and end?
One thing is clear - Naruto will have the answer but there will surely have to be some sort of equality between the villages - (not hard now that Konha has been blown off the face of the Earth).
So what do you guys think is the moral/solution of the story?
EDIT: One other thing that occurs to me. Naruto has always been depicted as childlike in his approach to issues. Minato and Sarutobi couldn't solve these issues in all their wisdom. WIll Naruto find the solution with a childlike logic - the simplest of solutions which adults are blind to?
