I wrote a lengthy response to this statement but I believe that we HAVE figured out what those shared values consist of. So long as the social contract prior to the construction of a community is well defined then the shared values are well defined and the community can converge on one focal point of consensus.

If the social contract is not well defined prior to a communities construction then you cannot reach a focal point of consensus because there is no well established concept on which people can converge. Shared values only exist when they are established in a charter at the founding of a community. Otherwise you have contention leading to the inability to reach consensus as we have seen.
