Back when you first got into Permaculture, I recall you stating that one of the big draws to you was the fact that it provided positive, creative, and constructive ways in which we can direct our energies for the betterment of humanity and the world we live in.
It stands in contrast to getting angry at bad guys, shouting, breaking and burning things... all which simply serves to propagate division, conflict, and further the agenda of the bad guys.
Political and ideological belief systems that advocate intolerance of people who have different views are tools created by the same bad guys whose purpose is to create and multiply division and conflict.
What I think you are experiencing is a reaction to a monoculture of thought. Universities are especially vulnerable to this because they are essentially factory farms that produce intellectuals who think alike and act alike. and you know that anything that is adapted to a highly simplified system is inherently unstable and fragile.
If I take a pig out of a factory, or a plant out of a hydroponic production facility and "set them free" in a highly complex inter-connected natural environment how long do you thing they would last? Not very long right? Unfortunately there are a ton of people who live in human factory farms both physically and mentally. What I struggle with is 1. Can they even be reached? and 2. Can they even survive a transition? and 3. Is my time and energy better invested in developing more fit for purpose individuals that are seeking and wanting my help?
