You seem to imply that Princepawn's relentless discourses
have an important harrowing effect, by constantly forcing
us to reevaluate our position. The implication is that he's
a Judas figure-- someone who does something despicable that
is nontheless necessary.
For another Biblical example, consider the story of David
and Bathsheba. If you don't know the story, King David of
Israel has an affair with another man's wife, gets her
pregnant, indirectly murders her husband, and then marries
her. A prophet brings this fact to life and tells him God
will judge him for these things, by taking away David's
wife, killing the child, and plaguing him with war. It
also turns that Solomon, David's successor and son, was a child
of Bathsheba. Clearly God did not approve of David's
actions, and still used the results to good ends.
The moral is that good things can still come from
the actions of Judas figures, not that Judas figures are
necessary for good things to occur.
