pretty much everything else ‘above’ these levels is either practical negotiation (based on power and position) or happening at the (even deeper) human to human level.

I could imagine a sort of Q&A process where you are simply asked which assertions you most strongly agree with and it walks you into the set of paradigms that you might be operating under.

Such formal models would be useful as well because they would make general and visible the strongest critique of every given paradigm, the internal contradictions,the open questions, etc. So we wouldn’t have to waste time retreading arguments that have already been closely made.

@TornadoNate A different frame: “anger” is energy. The same energy can be expressed in any number of ways. What we are looking for now is to express anger as a laser not as a flashbomb.

I wonder if formal models of cultural paradigms including their hierarchies of axioms and “where we are and how we got here” historical narratives would make dialogue more helpful.
