Quote by Chuck Palahniuk: “The first rule of fight club is, you dont talk...”
Why You Should Talk About Fight Club
But, there is another layer to this. The club grows and Tyler gains more followers, and therefore, power, when people talk or invite people to the meetings. Just think about the kind of "homework" assignments that Tyler has the Club doing: erasing VHS tapes, blowing up computers, destroying coffee shops. This psychological shift of going against the basic moral compass and instead rebel against society, and relish in the results of this as it is a reward, shows that Tyler never had an expectation that anyone would follow the first two rules of Fight Club, and instead used it as the first step in the conditioning of his Space Monkeys. There is a fascinating thread on Reddit about this very topic, stemming from this image:. Whatever view you agree with, it is hard to deny that the rule goes deeper than simply having as few people know about Fight Club as possible, which is a general surface level reading and understanding of the film and of the line.

Stephen Lyons September 13, In October of a movie came out that punched the world in the face. It was based on a book that came out in that also punched the world in the face. It is a coming of age film for a generation that came of age wanting to flip off the establishment. Brad Pitt, the most violent sex symbol in the world. The first thing that is an indicator that the film is going to be good is the director, David Fincher. Most people have seen at least one Fincher film.

What do I mean? I see both sides to some degree and I slightly sound like a crazy person. How can you like and dislike something at the same damn time. How can my mind have two thoughts that are completely and utterly opposite of each other? Not just in my writing, but its happen in areas all over our life. I was 13 or 14 when I saw this movie and it resonated with me as much as it does today. We can all be of two minds, this idea of double mindedness.
