Yet these very well educated people, both Germans and Japanese committed some of the most horrific acts in the history of the world.

Agreed, but do not forget The USA insinerated hundreds of thousands in Hiroshima and Nagaski. Which brings up a point. Some of the most brilliant minds in the world were gathered together to build the 'gadget' during the Manhattan Project. Dr. Oppenhiemer and his crew used the most cutting edge physics and resources the world has ever known all for one purpose...to build a device that would be used to end the war. Regardless of how one views the dawn of the Atomic age and President Trumans decision to drop The Bomb. It is still a polarizing topic. America is an example of how science and education can be used to do great destruction.
