Homo sapiens appear to be helpless in the face of Ebola. They have lost their ability to think and the species is slipping into a slow lethargy. Few individual Homo sapiens appears to be ready to take a stand against the virus and fight for survival. Those who are willing to take a stand are not connected with each other and so are unable to make an impact. The World Health Organization and its parent body The United Nations Organization stand by helpless. They have lost their ability to think like every other organization. The pyramid is effectively paralyzed.
It is possible that the great global cull has begun that will reduce the human population by about seven out of eight individuals. Not much can be done along and there is no one with whom collective action is possible. Nature is in charge now.
