Perhaps education and religion can give us knowledge and truth, but will never rid us of evil. And by us, I mean humanity as a group. This seems to be the only commonality that I see between atrocities recorded over the last 5000 years of civilized human populations. The face of evil may change over time, but not one era has clean hands. To blame current ideology for current atrocities is a fool's erand at best. Evil uses ideology to further itself, not the other way around.

Do you think you have recieved a good education?
Are you brainwashed?
If brainwashing were as effective as you claim, then why are there people preaching AGAINST brainwashing? It seems that it isn't as effective as you think it is.
And also, companies like independent thinkers and rule breakers. They may try and rein them in from time to time, but in the long run independent thought is the engine of business (and science too).
