By finding the most divisive point and put it in a way that is succinct enough, you release the energy of the disagreements. People would not need to spend hours and hours just diving on this point. We would just agree to disagree on this particular thing. And then, almost magically, people started to agree on most of the things with most of their neighbors most of the time. So, my point is that instead of trying to convince people, one possible way is just to list the points where we just disagree for the time being, and then we work on the lower hanging fruits, the rough consensus.
