Rounding the Earth

Rounding the Earth is a MetaPrep Education Group LLC project with broad practical educational goals. The Rounding the Earth (RTE) substack has largely focused on the global pandemic since its inception in February, 2021, when it was established due to censorship of statistician Mathew Crawford's posts about ivermectin on Facebook.

Operation Uplift

During 2021, funding for some Operation Uplift projects came from MetaPrep Education Group LLC via proceeds from the RTE substack.

RTE's Battles With Censorship


The RTE Substack was created after one of Crawford's four 30-day bans from Facebook (and several smaller) during 2021.



Crawford served four separate 30-day suspensions from Facebook in 2021, and numerous other shorter suspensions for posting about pandemic-related topics. Never once was any information provided explaining why any of his posts were incorrect or misleading. These suspensions spurred him to start writing at Substack.
