This should help. The target is pretty accurate, nothing takes the place of practice, practice, practice.

The unfortunate part of that is that conscious people can (and have, historically) made perfectly logical cases for doing complete evil, that would allow them to defend their actions as being for the greater good.

Some moral compass is needed, otherwise, genocide will be justified by those logical, conscious people as being for the benefit of the entire human race.
How God must weep at humans' folly! Stand fast! God knows what he is doing!
Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

The other side of that is that both a leader and a religion can be very good things - Most of the incredible advancements in the history of Man could not have been possible without both. And neither necessarily requires a need to to be guided, nor the inability to think independently. In fact, those great leaps often occurred when free thinking individuals found common ground and a leader worthy of the task at hand.

There is no shame in following - the shame is in following blindly.

There is no shame in following - the shame is in following blindly.
Even so, there are basic rules, whether those be pulled from Biblical sources or otherwise. Rules against stealing, murder, and others which prevent or at least inhibit social strife and breakdown may vary, but the basics are present in most religions. Where the logic comes in, and can become evil easily is in defining who (or what, exactly) is human. Millions have died because some humans have been considered (quite logically) a clump of cells, even though given time there would be no debate. Others, for whatever quirk of definition that excluded them from the popular definition of humanity, have met the same fate.

Some moral compass, some sense of right and wrong is needed.
