The question of violence should be considered both on a personal and on a group level. When the individual is under the total influence of his society, it is extremely difficult to separate between his feelings and attitudes from his Matrix attitudes. Defining a "Soldiers- Matrix" in which all members of a Society are enlisted physically and mentally in their struggle helps to understand everyone’s position and identification. In the article we will question the topic of "regression" in Large Groups or Masses. It may be closer to psychic reality to say that the individual switches to a different State of Mind when he/she is under the influence of the Soldiers’ Matrix, entering a culture in which there is no place for guilt, shame nor empathy for others (and sometimes oneself and one’s close ones). It would be ‘regressive’ not to become identified with the Large Group, which is enormously influential on the individual. Violence is especially common when a group or society goes through a relational disorder of scapegoating. What can be done to change this situation and re-introduce guilt, shame and empathy in order to transform the LG back into a co-existing entity? How do we address unconscious feelings of annihilation anxiety and the fundamental collective unconscious of fear of rejection?
