It is claimed that the eras of Earl Warren and Warren Burger were marked by a philosophical stance of "judicial activism," meaning that both of these chief justices used their judicial powers to correct social, political, and legal ills through judicial action, as opposed to objective constitutional review. This essay asserts that the collected rulings of these two courts did, in fact, improve the overall state of the country in terms of the rights of our citizens to pursue lives as free from oppressive intolerance as possible. It examines six rulings (three from each court, in chronological order), some of which support this assertion, and a couple that do not (for the sake of balance). Both the rulings themselves and some of the effects of these rulings upon American society are described to reach a conclusion about the overall impact of these courts upon America.
