In the end there will be a consensus, you just have to define your
goals. The definition of your goals depends finally on the basic values
and convictions you have. If you don't agree on this basic ethical
questions, I don't think there will be a consensus. There just one
problem with this values: You basically have to experience them.

I think people can attain the best possible solution if they make some
basic agreements.
If there's a conflict between this basic agreements, you end up in an
endless discussion which may convince nobody.
