History

In the 50s we needed an undemocratic, activist judiciary to end segregation.

In the 60s we needed an undemocratic, activist judiciary to permit interracial marriage.

In the 70s we needed an undemocratic, activist judiciary to say that women own their own bodies.

These eminently reasonable decisions caused so much popular rage that now the Court is hoping that the rest of us can do marriage equality with less help from them than usual.
