How do the Labour and Conservative manifestos score on the FluffBuster GROK Indexes
It is often the case that text or speech actually conveys very little by way of a model that can be used to understand, explain or predict.
So, here at FluffBusters, we have invented some (subjective) FluffBuster GROK Indexes - to help us focus our attention on some of the many different meaning-carrying qualities of texts.
For example -
FluffBuster Meanings per Word Index = how many words are used on average to convey each piece of useful meaning.
WU = Number of Words used
NT = Number of Things or concepts identified
QT = Intuitive weighted average of the Quality of those Things/categories - on a scale 1-10
NR = Number of Relationships identified
QR = Intuitive weighted average of the Quality of the Relationships described - on a scale 1-10
NBOE = Number of Blatant Omissions and Errors
IBOE = Intuitive weighted average Impact of the Blatant Omissions and Errors - on a scale 1-10
Thus - meaningful content = (NT * QT) + (NR * QR) - (NBOE * IBOE)
This is then multiplied by the Systems Factor which is an average of the
divided by 4
So the Systems Adjusted Meaningful Content score for
So the FluffBuster Words per Meaning Index scores are
So despite the superficially attractive systemic structural appearance of the Labour Manifesto it was brought down by poor categorization quality, a lack of holistic systemic dynamic thinking, a deeply flawed and high impact misunderstanding of human nature, and the number of blatant high impact omissions and errors.
The Conservative Manifesto started badly with a very low NR * QR, but more than compensated with its explicit references to high impact moral matrix issues, a high human nature compliance score, and a low (NBOE * IBOE) because it recognized a number of high impact issues that have been tabooed and even outlawed by other parties for some considerable time.
Alternatively - if your are already committed to a belief in the Labour Party, and would prefer a scoring system in which the Labour Manifesto does better, you might prefer the
The FluffBuster Mappable Structure Index - which rewards the bold judgmental either or identification and naming of; entities / things / principles - and relationships between things - whilst punishing the use of fudging, subtlety, sophistry and rhetorical tricks. A high score on this index suggests we might have a starting point for a holistic discussion, but does not necessarily indicate a viable predictive dynamic model, because this index does not measure references to, or evidence of, any dynamic emergent systemic holistic joined-up thinking.
