Letter: ‘Be sensible and live life’

To the Editor:

We are hearing of rising COVID-19 cases in states opening up, and a second wave ... why? They need more deaths in order to justify their shutting down the world economies on advice from people who do not have everlasting life.

• 1918 Spanish flu: World population 1.6 billion, U.S. population 103 million; total deaths, world estimated 20-50 million, U.S. 667,000.

• 1957 Asian flu: World population 2,873,306,078, U.S. 177,751,486; total deaths, world estimated 1 to 2 million, U.S. 116,000.

• 1968 Hong Kong flu: World population 3,559,028,982, U.S. 194,600,000; deaths world estimated more than 1 million, U.S. 100,000.

Here is what we have all survived in the last 20 years: Y2K, Anthrax, West Nile virus, SARS, bird flu, ecology climate change, financial collapse, swine flu, the Mayan calendar end of the world, nuclear threat from North Korea, Ebola virus, ISIS taking over the Middle East, Zika, 2020 COVID-19 coronavirus, monster murder hornets and now, Asian Tiger Mosquitoes.

Now I ask, exactly who are the people behind the current sending us all this fear to control us? It is all an illusion, like the Wizard of Oz was.

Be sensible and live life. Life is a gift from God, and it is not within man to alienate such gift and voluntarily make himself a slave to bend his knee to lick the boots of an imposed human ruler.
