>>188614866>What's the point of hoarding the money for some grand revolution when you die and can't use it?
It was never about HIM using it, it was about the villagers using it to rise up against the Samurai, after he was crippled he understood he wouldn't be the great warrior he once was, but still would not sink to 'their' level and use illgotten goods-and do remember he stole that shit, he didn't just save up his share-in order to make his family wealthy.
And in the end, that blind dedication to his ideals, even though its a completely noble one, is what got him killed. It's a recurring theme in this show, blind devotion to a cause, noble or just wanting the gold, is going to end badly. Kind of funny that Itachi and Dororo's parents died by the same obsessiveness, just in different directions. Don't be devoted to something so much you lose sight of everything else.
Unless its Buddha I guess, they kind of muddied the theme there by showing obsessive dedication to the buddha worked out great, and giving up on it was the worst choice. I dunno on that one.
