Re: Sasuke is one of the most selfless people.
I understand his history, but that doesn't mean I have to agree with everything you say about him. Considering only the Council members and Danzo and the Hokage knew the real truth about the Uchiha massacre and the rest of the village just assumed that one of the clanmembers had gone insane and killed them all, it isn't their fault that they enjoy the "peace" as a result of the massacre. They are not guilty at all, because they don't know the real truth. You can't blame someone for benefitting of something like peace if they don't know what exactly happened. So in that aspect, Sasuke is selfish to kill people, who knew nothing about the real truth.

Again, ignoring Itachi's wishes for him to stay save and live the life that Itachi wasn't able to have, makes him selfish actually. Itachi wanted to make sure that Sasuke got the life that he himself had never been able to experience because of the burdings he took upon himself and the fact that Sasuke persists in revenge, throws himself in danger, effectively ignoring Itachi's wish for his beloved younger brother to stay safe is pretty selfish.
Sasuke could have waited to attack Danzo when he caught him alone. Breaking into a summit with powerful Kage is incredibly stupid. That doesn't make him selfless, it makes him out as someone stupid and too impatient to wait for a good moment. He could have formulated a better plan in which he didn't risk getting killed by various Kage and instead just threw himself into danger without any regard for his own life. He was lucky that Obito was there to save him or his path of revenge would have ended right there.
He would have been selfless, if he had gone back to the village after Itachi died, or at least after he got to hear the truth and then demanded that the ones responsible for the massacre would be put on trial. That would have been selfless.
Going after powerful enemies without thinking of the consequences and throwing away the very life his brother fought to protect is not selfless, it's stupid and selfish.
Does he need to give up the thought of revenge? No, he doesn't. In his place I wouldn't give up either. But there are better ways to go about it.
