Ask Your Question
Overall, would you say that Homer Simpson is a good, or bad individual?
Good. He's very flawed, but he means well.
Strangling his own son? Irl he would be in prison for child abuse.
From what I've seen he is oblivious to many things. To a point where he doesn't even know if what he's doing is right or wrong most of the time.
I honestly don't think he has the mental capacity to judge him in that way but I haven't watched the Simpsons in a long time..
He's Not a person, he's a drawing in a cartoon
When it's crunch time he does the right thing but when it's not he does the wrong thing.
Doesnt show up for work, is lazy, eats too much, drinks too much. Id say hes a bad person.
What a philosophical question
As it's been said, he doesn't even understand his actions or of those around him. He thinks the nicest guy in the world is a jack ass, for example, really only because he's jealous of Ned, and as he's written he's likely not to understand this even if he sat down with a therapist
So in his mind, in his reality, his perception of reality, he's bound to be "a good guy"
But to the ones observing his behaviors and decisions, he's too stupid to even understand how what he does is/could be bad
Like when he became so fat so he could work at home. All he thought about was putting on more weight so he didn't have to go into work. In his mind, they were good and right actions. Not even by the end of it when he became a plug for a nuclear explosion did he admit it was a bad idea. He just lost the weight for consistency.
There are lots of people like this too. Maybe not as transparently or superficially stupid, but they could fuck one thing up after another and there's no accountability for them, or those who hear a snippet of information and jump on a bandwagon of dissent, there's no reasoning someone out of hate like that
So I mean objectively, even if we tone some of his things down to make them more realistic, he's not really a good person. He just has good intentions. It takes more than that to be a good person. What really makes all of it bad is that he's written as a lowest common denominator.
Homer Simpson is really just a moron more than anything else.
