A Reminder to Justice Kennedy

by Kathryn Jean Lopez

from Maggie Gallagher:

I think it’s a serious problem. A democracy should not be dependent for its major decisions on what nine unelected people from a narrow legal background have to say. And I think it’s of tremendous importance for our political system to show the rest of the world — and we have to show ourselves first — that democracy works because we can reach agreement on a principled basis. — Justice Kennedy, March 7
