Is Mankind Itself Mentally Ill?

If mankind were one being, would it be sane?

Mental illness is of several kinds.  In one of them, schizophrenia, splitting occurs in the mind that sets it against itself. Does this describe mankind?

In an ill mind, passion and logic can be at war with one another. Passion can rule. Or logic can rule, producing a sociopathic society. Does this describe mankind?

In a healthy mind, the forces of passion and logic both work to the overall benefit. The mutual benefit. Does this describe mankind?  It could.

The being with a billion eyes and ears now has cellphones. Passion empowers logical shapes globally.

Does this idea feel reasonable?
