I think most of your questions might be answered in this thread that compiles most C's transcript reference to psychopathy. (scroll down to Laura's posts)
In one transcript, they said it's mostly genetic, in another "it runs in families". So I would guess that an increase would mean they reproduce more. Unless I did not understand the question correctly?
Thank you, it helped me, my question came from this:
September 3, 2008 she said:
Q: (L) That brings me to my next question. Have you said that psychopaths are flawed OPs?
Q: (L) Well, how do they become defective? I'm trying to figure out how to ask this... Are they defective because they were born that way?
Q: (L) Do they have defects because of something that happened in their childhood?
Q: (A***) Where did they design that way at some point?
A: Some are specially designed lately. But in general it is genetic by mutation.
Q: (L) Okay, so if it's due to a mutation, when did the original mutation occur?
A: More than once, but the first time was fifty thousand years ago.
Q: (L) Is it true that psychopaths... well, we know that they appear in the population in a certain percentage? Do they increase at different times in history so that they become more numerous and take over the planet and create a lot of destruction, and in creating this destruction, do they destroy themselves or reduce their own numbers significantly, sort of like populations of rabbits? and foxes or something like that?
A: Very similar, yes.
Q: (L) Is there something to my idea that the current trend of psychopathy comes from a crossbreeding between Neanderthal and Aryan types in Europe or somewhere in Asia?
A: A strain, yes. But not all psychopaths.
Q: (L) What particular strain would arise from the crossing of the Neanderthal and Aryan types?
A: The kind that has the impulse to destroy.
Q: (A***) Aren't all psychopaths basically destructive? (L) I don't think so. I think that, for example, the schizoid psychopath is different. And then there's the paranoid psychopath, and then of course when you deal with pure psychopaths, you have a scale... what's it called, a spectrum.
It is seen that the genetic component is the main mechanism and some cases would be designed, especially in recent times.
The question is also asked if they increase in certain periods of time and the answer is similar, yes... this makes me doubt since with similarity they can refer to many cases, could the essential psychopathy remain and the "increase" would be a greater ponization of society, character paths could also increase due to the use of chemicals and toxic substances. For example, I am struck by the high number of psychopaths in Israel and the United States and how those levels were reached (surely they will come to mind several things that could have contributed)... in short just speculation.
