The anonymity provided by membership in a group provides both the opportunity to do things that society might frown upon (e.g., activities of the KKK) and to avoid doing things that are dangerous to the individual but society would be better for it (e.g.
If you happen to be part of a group (involved with a "crew-served" weapon, crew of a bomber, etc.) and you are also quite distant from your enemy, the killing even gets easier.
