LOL! This is fun stuff, Brian....Thanks for a thoughful, and fun run through some recent trends in our crazy world...OK, if I were going to "downgrade" the "cult" comparison, I might harken back to Kurt Vonnegut's (I know, I am old--we used to read him) concept of "Granfalloonery" or "Karass", and I quote here from Wikipedia: "A granfalloon, in the fictional religion of Bokononism (created by Kurt Vonnegut in his 1963 novel Cat's Cradle), is defined as a "false karass." That is, it is a group of people who outwardly choose or claim to have a shared identity or purpose, but whose mutual association is actually meaningless."
That makes it perhaps less diabolical, but seems to be in the ballpark...
