I agree that the real enemy is blind adherence to doctrinal imperatives rather than religion
Once you have an ideology that cannot be questioned then anything can be justified by it regardless of what the ideology is

Greed can however be justified from a non ideological perspective such as providing for ones family over total strangers
We are not hard wired for universal altruism so some discrimination / favouritism is therefore inevitable
This is not a moral problem as such as long as one is not intentionally harming others as a consequence

With regard to psychopaths feeling remorse I know of only one major serial killer who ever publicly did
All the others that I know of were indifferent or unapologetic for their crimes which is what one would expect of them
