Miyamoto Musashi wrote from a battlefield perspective, and as Karl Friday elicits, "…he had little demonstrable influence on posterity until modern times." [126] In medieval Japan, because bushido emphasized obedience above all other aspects of conduct, yet at the same time, remained contractual, where obedience was only required as long as it served the motives of the individual, it gave the individual the freedom of unrestricted action and became a gateway for brutality to occur. [127] The then modern emperor-system also served as a gateway for atrocities to occur if a superior ordered the brutality, or if they contributed to victory. uted to victory.
