> As far as Mel Gibson is concerned, he learned his antisemitic tendencies from his father, Hutton Gibson, who is an avowed antisemite who has authored material claiming that the Holocaust never happened, etc. Alcohol sometimes makes for a good "truth-serum" as it relaxes one's inhibitions (disinhibition). Old messages are hard to extinguish.

I didn't realize this thread had been redirected, but it makes sense that it was. I had read about Mel's father shortly after Mel's arrest and remember thinking, "Well, like father, like son." Sadly, you are correct about old messages being hard to extinguish, but I suppose if they weren't, we'd never learn positive lessons from our parents. Nature appears to be blind to concepts like morality. I learned, the hard way, about the truth serum qualities of alcohol my first year of college. It took a few punches to the face for me to finally decide to get a better control over my mouth. I think Freud's most important contribution to the world was his concept of the subconscious. It's a powerful thing.
