In these and a thousand other matters, the left and the press have declared that their shared opinion is settled science, inalienable right, historical fact, or the law of the land, and any further discussion is irrelevant or diabolical.

Most of those who might've listened and agreed have already left.

That the court is even being asked to impose a sweeping social change on the nation is illustrative of another lost battle -- the idea that the Supreme Court is not a super-legislature and that nine robed lawyers ought to refrain from imposing their policy preferences on the whole nation.

Even two liberal justices, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer, have from time to time expressed caution about the Court imposing its will on matters better left up to the...
