On this, I would say that there isn't a real difference between the Condorcet Paradox and the Arrow Paradox. For all its fame, Arrow's Theorem was just a reinvention of the wheel. They both boil down to: "Under reasonable assumptions, any ranked-ballot voting method fails independence of irrelevant alternatives". In fact, rated-ballot methods do so in practice as well (score, Majority Judgement etc.) because people are always going to base their scores/grades on the candidates standing rather than in isolation.

Firstly, I believe that Balinski and Laraki explain how MJ avoids both “Condorcet paradox” and the “Arrow paradox” (ibid, pp.182-3).
