In the early 70’s I joined a fraternity. In the spirit of the times, the organization was counter culture to the other houses. The house had the highest GPA of any of the fraternities. As an engineering major, for my first “formal” event I wore clothing with a fresh set of acid holes. I was overdressed. We decided that many of the “required” rituals were so barbaric that we refused to do them. Our adaptation was that in the initiation after party we told the new members what the intended ritual was, and on pain of whatever to never reveal that we just skipped that part. The national organization never knew of our “non-compliance.” We used common sense.

There is a very clear effect on interstate commerce caused by the licking of whip cream off a pledge’s rear end.

It would appear that Congress never heard of the 10th Amendment.
