If 2022 taught us anything, it is that we didn’t have a clue. Just when we thought we knew what was coming next, it turns out we were way off. Many people thought that Russia would not actually invade Ukraine. Just two months into the year, that prediction was proven wrong as the brutal war continued throughout 2022. Military experts suggested Russia’s war would be quick and convincing, but the Ukranian resistance continues to inspire. Many predicted the United States Supreme Court would not actually overturn Roe v Wade. The writing was on the wall with the death of Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the 6-3 conservative majority. With rampant inflation and a general malaise as we approached the midterm elections, many experts predicted a red wave come election day. Some predicted it would be more of a tsunami than a wave. That didn’t happen, as democrats lost just nine seats in the House and slightly expanded their control of the Senate. There were many reasons throughout 2022 to think the walls would close in on Donald Trump. After the raid on Mar-a-Lago and the conclusion of the Jan. 6 committee’s work, many experts predicted the former President would be indicted in 2022. He remains a free man, at least for now. And some though Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter would lead to a more successful company. That one wasn’t even close. As we begin 2023, we may think we know what will come next, but last year shows we probably don’t have a clue.
