It always seemed to me that many fraternities were basically corporate breeding grounds. Similar ideology- conspicuous consumption, hyper masculinity, denigration of outsiders, adherence to meaningless rituals and symbols, etc.

The shaming of newcomers helps to instill psychological attachment to the organization. And from what I've heard from friends, the Wall St culture is similar- new hires are expected to work obscene hours and drink with their higher-ups.
