[Comment] Offline: The fetishisation of “global”

Last week, the UK Government, WHO, and OECD came together to host the first Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit. The gathering, under the banner of “Equality for mental health in the 21st century”, felt a genuinely momentous event. Matt Hancock, Britain’s Conservative Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, spoke about “a bold and ambitious statement of intent”. Mental health was “a defining challenge of our age”. As machines take over what, in the past, have been considered cognitive tasks, human beings will be left to rely ever more on their emotional skills and abilities.
