I really enjoyed this, CF. Psychopathy, as described here, made me wonder about karma. I do wonder if the brain imaging is different in psychopaths because they have simply set up patterns in their thinking and feeling, rather than because they're any more innately inclined towards psychopathy than any other person. I think we all choose between empathy and selfishness from childhood. Perhaps if the selfish choice is made habitually the brain becomes more inclined towards it.

There are some who theorise that psychopaths evolved in response to humanity's need to have certain individuals do the dirty work.

That makes perfect sense.

So, if we eliminate dirty work, might we eliminate psychopaths?

We need to evolve out of the concept of 'dirty work'. Good luck with that.
