Those who think that lack of education is the sole reason for the destructive governance you might want to check educational qualifications of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot et al.
There is a difference between being literate and educated. If one’s learning hasn’t been liberal then one has wasted best years of one’s own life and some more of others.
And then education has very little to do with inherent humanity and common sense.
The most dangerous trait is one’s ability to disregard one’s inherent humanity.
