I've read about group karma, and I didn't question it until recently.

I believe that the first time I read about it was in one of Annie Besant's books. Now, I kind of wonder if the concept of "group karma" isn't just a result of human logic. I agree that karma works at individual level, but I doubt that it works at group level. Why would it? Because it would be nice, logical, or expected for a bad behaving group to be punished? That's human logic. Usually a group's behaviour is the result of the decisions of a small number of its members who impose on the rest of the group. What if those few leave, are restrained, or die? Should the rest of the group still have to pay for the accumulated bad karmic debt? Should they be victimized a second time just because they belong to that arbitrary group (nations, ethnicities, etc.)? They've already been victimized once by the bad guys. Where's the fairness?

I remember a q&a with William Buhlman, at Monroe Institute, when somebody asked if he thinks that humanity is on its way to eventually evolve towards peace and understanding. W.B. replied that he doesn't believe so because that would defeat the purpose of a physical world into which people incarnate to have experiences to learn from. There's already no antagonism in the non-physical, so what would be the use of incarnating in a non antagonistic physical?

Also, past life regressions show that we reincarnate all over the Earth (and more), sometimes males other times females, different races, different ethnicities.
