Tell me why excess deaths are so high?
Vaccine side effects. Seriously.
Think about this-- covid deaths (for any variant) have never been a significant cause of death for the 0-45 age group. What we saw over the last 3 years is that covid overwhelmingly kills very old people. In order for covid to be the cause of a 20% spike in excess mortality in a <45 age group would be a massive shift in how we understand covid. It simply cannot be the cause.
MRNA vaccines, on the other hand, now have a well documented history of causing heart problems (among other issues), especially in the 0-45 age groups.
So why isn't this being acknowledged?
First, it is. This has been widely known in the 'anti vax' (aka critical thinking) crowd for over a year now.
But the real problem is twofold: 1) No control group. When the pharma companies received express approval for the vaccines, they abandoned their double blind studies. Seriously. 70%+ of the global population took an experimental genetic therapeutic. This is basic grade 7 science stuff -- you cannot test a hypothesis without a control group. So, scientifically, it's now very difficult to say what precisely is the cause of the excess mortality.
The second issue is human nature. We have governments, business leaders, and everyday people who are highly invested in having been justified in taking the draconian measures they took in 'promoting' vaccine uptake. It takes a very humble politician (with no future political aspirations) to say "we were wrong to have kept you out of movie theatres and public swimming pools for not having consented to our vaccine coercion."
Big pharma lied about the efficacy (or guessed, since they didn't have time to test it) and world leaders went ALL IN on the lie. It's very hard for humans to walk-back on having taken too-hard a line on something.
Hope this helps you understand, although I'm sure it won't. But hey, at least you're acknowledging the excess deaths now. I think the 'antivax' brigade informed you about excess mortality quite a long time ago on this forum. Funny how it's not real to you until CBC reports it! Maybe in 5 years they will tell you what I'm telling you now. It's the vaccines. Long covid is also, to a large degree, likely caused by vaccine injuries. But we may never know the true extent because there is no control group. This is a big problem!
