The Lost Generation Project / Part III

In this part of the project I raise the question of ego. I consider ego as a human power to create or to destroy. 
Where is the switch which leads to good or evil? Here we are faced with two sides of the same coin; two sides of 
the same past. I paint future Jewish artists and future Nazis as children. They come from the same era, born 
innocent and capable. Mirroring each other as children, they take a completely different approach on life as adults.
Why? How can we prevent our ego leading to horrors and use it to create beauty? 
Or am I naive to wonder?
