Derek Mackie: Jacinda's "Field" of Dreams

I’m baa-aack!!!!
In the public eye, if not on home soil. Sorry to disappoint. 
I won’t ask if you’ve missed me - we both know the answer to that. The question would likely prompt an uncontrolled and deep felt outburst of raw emotion on your part which would only embarrass us both. 
I’m too empathetic to inflict that on you. 

 Yes Aotearoa, after what seems like an eternity of 18 months in the top-tier academic trenches, fighting the evils of right-wing misinformation; getting down-and dirty in the luxury pile carpets of Harvard, I am once again returning to the world stage, where I Left-ly belong. 

 It’s been so hard for me squirrelled away from my adoring public in a beautifully appointed, elite Ivy League office; mobbed, in a good way, between lectures by the brightest and best young minds that neo-Marxism has lovingly moulded, twisted and propagandised. 
I’ve tried unsuccessfully to hide my dazzling red light under a huge, Grant Robertson wellbeing budget-sized bushel of inspired ideological, cherry-picked research assertions; unhindered by the shackles of supporting data; scrupulously peer reviewed by my independent and zealously loyal team; and clearly and unequivocally demonstrating the dire threat climate deniers, hate speech addicts and extremist non-progressive socialists and right-wingers pose to planetary harmony and global progress

 Immensely valuable as my academic endeavours have been, it’s time for me to step back into the limelight and provide that much needed beacon of hope to a deeply divided, misguided and distrustful world. 
God - and I say that purely as a figure of speech with no personal religious connotations whatsoever - I’ve missed it. 
And talking of “global progress”, it allows me to segue perfectly into my latest crusade for the hearts and minds of all the world’s citizens…. those worth saving at any rate. 

 Hosted by…. Global Progress, today I’m announcing my new fellowship programme for political leaders of a progressive persuasion. 
It’s called Field
Why, I hear you ask; and I’ll tell you…. eventually…but not until I’ve shamelessly promoted my unique set of attributes which make me the obvious woman to lead this crucial learning opportunity. 

 Field is all about kindness and empathy, something I excel in. It’s for like-minded politicians; that’s to say strong, determined people who can think exactly the same way and believe exactly the same things; and value, above all else, the groupthink approach …. even when pesky, so-called facts get in the way. 
Field teaches pragmatic idealism…or just idealism really, since pragmatism can be a major handbrake to achieving your key objectives, as I found out through first-hand experience in my previous life as a beloved world leader. 
Field creates a nurturing environment which encourages leaders to speak to their people with hope and optimism, not fear and blame, even in the darkest times when their own policies have led to economic and social ruin. Again, something I specialise in. 
Field is part of my ongoing mission to help rehumanise leadership and well, just be useful. 

 But enough about me. No really, I insist. 

 So, why call it Field
Could it be because it aspires to provide a blank canvas for a wide cross-section of Left-wing ideas; in other words to be as big, broad…and vacant as a newly ploughed barren field?
Or because ideas will germinate, sprout and grow, like crops in a field…to be cut down, threshed and 100% organically processed until only the superior, ideologically modified strains remain? 

 Or, could it be something even more inspirational? Thank you for asking - yes, it could. 
I called it Field because, to me, this ground-breaking programme represents…. 

                     ….. my Field of Dreams

 A forum that concentrates progressive thought and potentially produces something truly world changing…or, at the very least, hopefully just produces something. 

 Despite being based at Harvard, I’ve decided to begin my programme in Europe which has the greatest density of progressives. They’re so dense there that the first 12-month course is massively over-subscribed. 
I hate to turn the easily led away and it pains me to see all those eager but disappointed faces denied the benefit of my wisdom and vision, but smaller groups enabling one-on-one sessions are critical to engendering the right atmosphere of kindness and empathy. 
And high demand will increase the fees of subsequent courses which will allow me to fund even more valuable progressive research and my ever-growing travel commitments and other miscellaneous expenses. 

 But you should never stop thinking outside the box.  
As I learnt during the pandemic lockdowns and my ostracisation of the unvaccinated, sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind; and apathy can be a far better strategy than empathy when faced with the tedious wailing that accompanies loss of rights and freedoms endured by non-conformers and attention-seeking protest groups that you deliberately victimised for challenging your pragmatic ideology

 Field is my unique solution to fixing our rotten capitalist political system and all the social woes and inequities it has spawned. And like man-made climate change, it is firmly founded in incontrovertible facts, not just robust theory and modelling; as the citizens of my beloved homeland know only too well, having enjoyed 5 years of kindness, caring, wellbeing and empathy re-education. 
This effective pilot study in Aotearoa, prior to global roll-out, has been an overwhelming success.  It certainly proved overwhelming for a significant group of our less radical and, dare I say it, conservative citizens. 
But I can declare the patient still alive, pumped full of wellbeing, although breathing a little erratically ….but no longer in need of life-support. 
Inclusively richer, ethnically and gender enlightened, and shamed where appropriate; though financially significantly poorer. 
A small price to pay, I believe, for a country now swimming in empathy and with a healthy sense of entitlement…. that I no longer choose to live in. 

 It just remains to say that I am truly humbled by my genius in creating Field and excited by the platform it provides, allowing me to showcase my natural talents to a world desperate for nothing more than a big hug and a kind smile. 

 Yours Jacinda

You ask - "have we missed you"- the outrage, the chest thumbing, the foot stomping, the hair pulling, the dribbling at the lips, the language that pours forth - ?? How is that for vexation, uncontrolled outburst - Hello so your are back. Did you informed Luxo & Seemore - especially seeing that your article is about - sorry we can not mention Her name - as it may impact on -

1. - Luxo - having to make a phone call to ANZ (embrassing) and seek help to get to Japan, from another Country, when He could have caught a direct flight from AKLD International airport, now faces a another complex issue, being 'second best in the NZ MSM' due to - her who is unnamed;

2. - Seemore, seeing he it still "being hounded over children being fed at school" What ever happened to the "packed lunch, by Mum, shoved in your hand as you exited the back door to school Monday to Friday??"

Derek, did you go through those days, and at lunch time gathered with others, and 'auctioned off and/or traded' (this is where future MFAT staff learn the art of the deal) - your sammies, with another, because Mum "may just have given you jam ones again"?

I note that "you have avoided in mentioning which University and/or Nation wherein located. In your time their, did you have to -
- sing any song in praise of Karl Marx, Lenin Vlad Putin
- learn new socialist words, pronouns, the meaning of DEI
- wear a 'certain' neck scarf whilst praising Allah

Welcome Home, look forward to more "Epistle's from Derek", in the coming weeks.

Merciful People, all praise upon the Pen and words of the Prophet Derek, that we again look forward to reading and commenting on.

That is of course dependent on the Moderator and their view of our view, not meeting their view.

Ardern could fool most of NZers all of the time and all of NZers most of the time. She found out on 2021 and 2022 that she could not fool all NZers all the time.

So she quit to protect her brand overseas and looks to me like she is definitely back following some the woke leftists overseas all of the time!

Thank Goodness for that - please keep her there and may she ‘gift’ them the same spin and Bull dust she dispensed so freely in NZ!

Lovely, Derek. (Never was a comma so well-placed?) You perfectly captured the smugness of the blinkered fool that she is. I don't think she will ever (be able to) live in NZ again. And I say that with hope. I have been in the same room with her once but she better hope it never happens again.

The Jacinda curse, reverse Midas touch, will turn this idea into dust.
Then we can call her Field, barren land. A bit like her brain.
God will we ever be ridden of this burdensome person !

My goodness, by the end you almost had me believing that she herself has written this

Derek, I love your work, but I stopped reading as soon as I got to the word "Jacinda". I'm sure shes creating a terrible mess where ever this terrible woman (if she deserves to be called one) rears her terrible face. She's not welcome back into the terrible mess she left behind.

Anon 12:54, my principal concerns are with material that may be actionable (e.g. libel, incitement), and material the publication of which may bring NZCPR/BV into disrepute. I do not vet opinions except where those come under one of these categories.

Field of dreams you say. More like a Ukrainian wheat Field in 1932.

Michael Laws on the Platform and u-tube has also passionately reinforced the sentiments expressed in this article.

Why can't decent, honourable people acquire the same charisma as this woman ? Oh,I forgot the worst evil can appear to deceive many as a glorious angel of light.

Well she never fooled me, not even once. From the first moment she appeared I felt repulsed. Her insincerity was that apparent.

In fact she highlighted everything that was wrong with the world and my view of things became more clear. I guess this I suppose I could thank her for but having to thank her for something or anything at all would be like having to regurgitate gorse thorns.

Go Dereck!!
Never have I in a long lifetime ever felt such hatred for such a malfeasant creature as Ardern. Begone black spot!!

Well said, TJS. My partner happens to have completely opposite views (on Ardern) to me, and I have had to live with that - and frequent heated and polarising discussions on the subject - over the past 6-7 years, but I despise humbug, intolerance and gratuitous insincerity, and Ardern to me represents all of it and much more. Watching her perform, especially when out of forced necessity during the Covid era, was a complete turn-off for me.

I suppose she can be 'admired' for the glib presentation-skills which elevated her to where she managed to get to, and for managing to blind or convince appropriate numbers of people along the way, but I was certainly never one of them, not for a moment.

It is an era thankfully passed, but sadly her abiding questionable legacy will continue to play out in NZ for many years to come.
