I must interject that psychopathy is not a prerequisite for committing genocide

I cannot see how a non psychopath could commit genocide
One of the traits of psychopathy is zero empathy which is why psychopaths can commit such immoral acts
One would at the very least need to have very low levels of empathy that would not impact upon ones conscience
I suppose a non psychopath could have psychopathic tendencies but usually they are kept in check and not enacted

I know that you are far more knowledgeable than I on all matters psychological given your mothers background so you could
be right but I just think that truly immoral acts can only be committed by those who have no significant degree of empathy
