People, not all people but most people, are angry about the wrong thing.

I agree that Roe v Wade being canceled is a bad outcome. I agree that women should have the right to their bodies, but here's my possibly unpopular take:

A Supreme Court that doesn't give a damn what the public wants ... is exactly what a Supreme Court is for, actually.


@clacke But a supreme court should also be apolitical, and thus not appointment by partisan politicians. Executive and judiciiary should be totally independent. But then the entire US system is irredeemably fucked, so my point is moot.


@grumpysmiffy @clacke The idea that a supreme court can be apolitical is just patently absurd. The best it can achieve is to be politically non-partisan.
