All the non-covid highlights from the past year.
Happy New Year to our Legal Insurrection readers.
What a year 2022 has been! As I look back on the past year, I wanted to revisit some of special posts and treasured moments with you.
Because I am tired of writing about the coronavirus pandemic, this year I am making my review covid-free!
1) My Very Favorite Post: My 10th Year Anniversary at Legal Insurrection.
It’s had to believe I began writing for College Insurrection/Legal Insurrection in 2012! I am grateful for the opportunity, and a big thanks to everyone who has promoted my pieces and commented on my work. You help keep me smiling!
I love being able to support the Legal Insurrection team’s efforts on battling critical race theory and look forward to seeing the launch of the Equal Protection Project. As my son begins his journey through the world of academic, scientific research, endeavors such as this will give him and other talented young scientists the opportunities to achieve without being hindered by political agendas.
I also appreciate the chance to use this platform to challenge destructive narrative-based science, which I hope to do more of in 2023. I promise to be on target and on point!
2) My favorite Egypt Posts
I couldn’t decide which one I liked better, so you are getting links to both items.
The first one deals with the field of Egyptology, and what happens when academics stop being exposed to differing, fact-based opinions.
The second piece counters an Egyptian petition for the return of the Rosetta Stone, which now resides in the British Museum. Given how much the British have revered the artifact as an icon of learning, I argue that the Rosetta Stone should stay exactly where it is.
3) My Favorite Protest Post
I covered the Canadian trucker’s protests against pandemic policies with great interest. There were many inspired moments, and I also discovered a new pundit to follow.
Perhaps the best analysis comes from Neil Oliver, a Scottish television presenter, author, and presenter of several documentary series on archaeology and history.
After reviewing the content of fan letters, which discuss people opting to move from their homes to get away from vaccine dictates, Oliver poetically notes just how “one world” the globalized society has become. He brilliantly segues into the discussion of the Freedom Convoy and opines that he wishes he now was a Canadian trucker.

4) My Favorite Energy Post
I am now battling back against Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) policies, especially after having gotten an up-close and personal view through my “day job”. With the assistance of a couple of good friends who are also impacted by ESG, I was able to prepare an analysis showing that efforts to smear fossil fuels in order force the use of green energy alternatives is beginning to fail.
The piece received much good attention, and I hope to do more work on countering destructive narrative-science in 2023.
5) My Favorite Monkey Business Post
Even though I am not covering covid in this round-up, it seems no year would be complete without a post about some infectious disease. I had covered monekypox prior to 2022, but this year the virus, now inanely renamed mpox, went viral!
6. Favorite Tweet of the Year
I often tweet in support of my work, or the other articles published by my Legal Insurrection readers. I don’t often use my own tweets in pieces, but when Sweden’s Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson axed the nation’s department of Climate and the Environment, I couldn’t resist.
I may have found my newest crush. https://t.co/r06R0goioX
