Is Evergreen A Cult?

Kinda worth watching if just for the creepy, totalitarian clips from Evergreen...see e.g.the "playing the believing game" bit. Also the bit about "training" faculty into rightthink, and sanctioning them if they don't "get it." Then, of course, there's the obligatory invective directed at "whiteness."
   Once you really bring some bit of insanity into focus, it's hard not to obsess about it. I've tried to adopt a more stoic attitude about all this...but it really is so very insane. The white girl tearfully expressing her contempt for her own "whiteness"...Jesus. This cult is so influential in academia...and it's not going away. I expect it'll be just like last time: they get so crazy that liberals will sort of back off of defending them...they might seem defeated...but they'll just ensconce themselves in women's studies departments etc., and in the para-faculty....and they'll continue to work quietly for their nefarious ends...until we suffer another eruption in ten or fifteen years, and they'll seize more territory, destroy more of what makes universities worthwhile... If they're never completely pushed back/defeated, universities--or at least the humanities and social sciences--could be, in effect destroyed. (I suppose that the sciences and engineering will be largely immune, since they have to actually get things done...)

Is the time past for some Gates like figure to start a new Stanford?
