I think it's a goofy gimmick

Hardly insidious propaganda, though.

I would also note that bringing someone up a specific way in no way "forces" them into that way of thinking. I was brought up a neocon. I read a bunch, came across Tom Woods, and that marked the beginning of my transition into libertarianism; my dad came along, but not as fast, and I'm still more "extreme" than he is (that is, he's libertarian, I'm teetering on the brink of anarcho-capitalism).

Ironically enough, this is despite never going through a "teenage rebel" phase.
