The whole process of society becoming globalized, yet more virtual and fragmented – and yet more linked up in new technologically based ways – changes the boundaries of the group matrix in fundamental ways. Foulkes’ (1948) seminal ideas about the individual as a nodal point in the social network acquire new meanings when the social network is one that so radically redraws the lines of contact and communication.

I (Nitsun 1996) have previously postulated an anti-group process at social and cultural levels that can be seen as the widest expression of the anti-group and that is transmitted successively to groups within the cultural container, such as family, work and organizational groups. I further suggested that at the root of the cultural anti-group is the fear of insufficiency leading to destructive greed and rampant control that paradoxically create the very conditions that are feared: the loss of resources and supplies that are essential for living.
