Diced cows?

Janet Albrechtsen (“Sacred cows get diced by reality”, 29/6) casts a remarkably wide net when she blanket-accuses Malcolm Fraser, Julian Burnside, the ALP, Fairfax, the ABC, Lindsay Tanner, Doug Cameron, The Greens, and advocates of gay marriage, climate change science, immigration, and refugees, among others, of the sin of believing their own views are correct, which makes them guilty of “moral superiority”. It’s not what they say, but the way they say it that makes them wrong.

Albrechtsen diagnoses the cause of their error as a refusal to accept “reality”, that is, her own views. It seems she also suffers from a form of superiority – just not the moral kind.
