LOST Theory - Ben is Claimed
It makes so much sense now. The reason why the sweet little Young Ben became the sociopath we know and love today is because Richard took him to the Temple to be "Claimed".
Ben didn't get the spring healing treatment from Richard in 1977, but rather was infected with the sickness and turned into what he is today.
Being "Claimed" seems to have the same issue that Richard mentioned would happen to Ben: Ben would lose his innocence, never be the same again, forget the whole event, and "always be one of us".
That's my theory, and I expect to be proven dead wrong next episode.
