Letter to the editor: Seasonal situation?

Now that the precedent has been set by panic-driven autocrats, to indefinitely shut down our state, nation, and the entire world for what may be a nasty seasonal respiratory illness, why should we not expect to see similar shutdowns in subsequent winters?
Given that the misnamed ‘Spanish Flu’ peaked in three successive winters, can our nation’s workers or economy survive 3 annual prolonged lockdowns, followed by ever-increasing purported bailouts?
Further, can the savings or well-being of our fellow citizens survive the $1-2 Trillion so-called ‘stimulus’ packages for the favored few, now working their ways through Congress, as they must be financed entirely with counterfeit money? 
Will not the inevitable $3 Trillion annual deficits (inclusive of 1$ Trillion for warfare) quickly reduce the US to Banana Republic status?
Before it is too late, wouldn’t it be far better for all to immediately bar our government and its irresponsible minions from manipulating both health care and financial matters, and let nature run its course?
