מחלוקת is beautiful

The Chasam Sofer in the (דרשות (ח"א קפ"ג ד"ה כן  explains the Chazal of "ת"ח מרבים שלום בעולם"

Hashem created the Midos. בושה-עזות ,גאוה -ענוה, שלום-מחלוקת ,
The world is in need of them and cannot exist without them.
However, all these מדות can be used for the good
or ח"ו for the bad.

מחלוקת in תורה learning is a beautiful thing. It forces the
true פשט to come out. Talmidei Chachamim arguing in Torah
reduces the bad מחלוקת & the need for it.
Hence they are "מרבים שלום בעולם"
