The One Good Man

I listen regularly to Honey Badger Radio. On the recent episode 14 (White Knight Wipe Out), Alison Tieman reads her own text from 2011, The One Good Man. The text can be read here. Her reading is in the beginning of the episode.

It is a very good text. It reads a bit like poetry, it doesn't have metre, maybe not even a rhythm, but a sort of pulse (says me, a big poetry noob). As I see it, the One Good Man is engaging in massive moral self-licensing. He could be a calculating, manipulative person, but that is probably a lot rarer.
