The Human and Inhuman Response to Ebola's Menace
October 21, 2014 • 9:23AM

The responses, including by nations, to the escalating outbreak of the devastating Ebola Virus Disease in Africa, can be sharply divided between the human — expressing solidarity and scientific commitment in the face of this existential threat — and the inhuman, seeking to deny it and lull people into a state in which they will be killed by it.

Cuban President Raul Castro gave an extraordinary call for global action at a Latin American health officials' meeting yesterday. He went beyond the doctors Cuba has sent and is sending to Africa, to begin organizing a medical shield for the Caribbean nations including Haiti, and issued a highly specified call for global coordinated action involving every nation according to its abilities, to fight back what, with inaction, can become a deadly world pandemic. Castro said Cuba was ready to coordinate with the United States on this mission. At the same time Dr. Michael Osterholm, working with an international medical charity plan for an Ebola vaccine "Manhattan Project," called on governments to order 500,000,000 (five-hundred million) vaccine doses in advance, to make sure that this happens.

These are in the spirit of Helga Zepp-LaRouche's keynote to the Schiller Institute 30th Anniversary Conference in Frankfurt, Germany, evoking "a new era of mankind" a spirit marked by economic development "for the benefit of the other," and not by geopolitics; a spirit marked by the new "BRICS dynamic" of which she spoke. This conference gathered institutional figures from around the world, and most notably from China.

At the same time, LaRouche PAC across the United States is mass-distributing an action-call leaflet on Ebola, "Don't Let Obama's Lies about Ebola Kill You," yesterday at events from an Ebola forum in Washington to a Bill Clinton political rally in Louisiana. Diane Sare, in the LaRouche PAC Policy Committee discussion yesterday, graphically demonstrated just how easily health-care personnel could be killed by Ebola by following the lax "protocols" of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The inhuman response came from Dr. Anthony Fauci, at the top the nation's infectious disease experts, saying that he "could not say anything [about Ebola] without clearing it with the White House," after telling the American people, "Don't worry about it." From former Obama official Cass Sunstein, editorializing that Ebola is less threatening than traffic accidents, and the press should stop writing about it.

And from Obama, who has done nothing and requested nothing from Congress to fight Ebola, though he was so quick to request $1 billion last month to — train jihadis in Saudi Arabia to fight other jihadis.

"Obama's becoming a dictator!" exclaimed economist and statesman Lyndon LaRouche when briefed on Fauci's admission that he couldn't speak freely. Obama is also a British puppet who can be impeached, and must be impeached, if the U.S. and the world is to survive him.
