Alternate Artists as Warmongers

Previously I got onto a train of thought about how Adolf Hitler was almost an artist, but after rejection from art school, became a genocidal maniac instead, so logically some of our artists are probably warmongers elsewhere.

What if every eccentric artist is a walking linchpin?  What if they hold equal capacity for great art or great devastation?  What if there's a hidden group of people causing atrocities, but they don't know it, because they're college admission staff blindly toggling between Artist/Warmonger?

This seems like something that would be interesting to explore for the Alternate History theme.
