to the currently available alternatives (Agatha isn't politically
astute enough yet to fill the role), Klaus is hands down the best
person we've met for his position. Life in Europa would go seriously
downhill under Tarvek, the Other, and anyone else I can think of.
I've always felt that Klaus isn't being the Baron because he wants
peace and quiet to do his experiments, but because the peace and quiet
is good for the common man. This is another indication that he
probably does have compassion for the common man. In his situation,
burning Sturmhalten to the ground would be a much more reliable
solution, at least in the short term. Instead, he's looking for the
solution that works out well for the populace of Sturmhalten. Of
course, that last line shows that he's still being practical, possibly
more so than some people would feel comfortable with.

I think the only people who wouldn't expose a revenant
are their own family members. If people are scared of
Sparks then they must be more scared of revenants,
pod people after a fashion.
A catch is that the world does not know yet that there
are non-shambling revenatnts, so it will indeed look as
though Agatha is leading a popular uprising of democratic
expression against Klaus and he's gunning them down.
His own forces won't be happy about that.
