Listening to each other on Wikipedia

On wikipedia people with different opinions on topics : climate change, economics, political systems, spirituality, homeopathy, vaccines, esp etc come together to write an article together. This is quite extraordinary, writing an article with people you may strongly disagree with. And this can lead to wild edit wars on wikipedia.

Now what if there was a facilitation system that helped guide people on different sides of an article, to learn to listen to each other, empathize with one another, some kind of wisdom council. Using processes like wisdom councils, nonviolent communication, win-win techniques, etc to connect.

Could this process, if done again and again over hundreds of thousands of topics, lead humanity to listen to each other over a wide diversity of topics? Could this process if done well, help increase empathy on earth?
