I’d say psychologically he’s certainly positioned as the villain. His actions are consistent with what we consider evil with our current common social context.
But I meant philosophically. He certainly has a moral code that can be justified if you approach it as a being of pure logic rather than emotion. Like i said… it’s a trolley problem.
Though I do have issues with it from a logical POV that I commented on elsewhere. It’s spoiler heavy though. I’d be curious to your opinion. I guess I can create a spoiler thread and copy it here.
