Are you sure you're not getting Fraction's
IM story mixed up with the Knauf's?
Because what he is trying to accomplish in Haunted is going to very much kill him in the process. He's very clear about what his goals are and why he's doing it. He's trying to do something that he considers beneficial to mankind, its his villain morality which makes his plan heinous.
If you want to dispute that you're welcome to of course but you're going to have give examples from that story to back up your argument.
