  However, agreeing to disagree on values is the only way this society can function and it is the only way to break the cycle of polarization that we are trapped in.

That is only half of it.  We also have to agree to agree on some values:

"live and let live"
"help people to help themselves"
"share the benefits of progress"

Off the top of my head, you should get basic agreement on things like that.  Of course, they're meaningless without details but so are the 'agree to disagree' values.
