This development I can't help but see as disturbing. I can actually picture kishi saying "FUCK symbolism, naruto is now going to fight and beat the abstract concept of hatred". I guess in a way it would make sense though. The manga used to be about hard work and yet it came down to people being born with godly genes and being better than everyone else. The manga was about a lonely ninja working hard but he turned out to be jesus and be able to do miracles so its not like the ninjas had a choice here. Naruto even seemingly came back from the dead sent by his dad (well, great.... great grandad) in all his glory considering the rikudo bit. Then it was about hate pilling on... but no, even that was because black zetsu manipulated everyone. At this point everyone being a pawn of the abstract concept of hate personified would make some degree of sense within the concept of the story. It has murdered every theme it had at the start of the manga and the ones that replaced them, it might as well go out in a blaze of glory.
