What a great article and the argument you raise, Austin, is very interesting and relevant. That’s why I dig up Medium every day to find more of these type of articles than “How to be unimaginably happy in 5 steps”.
Fight Club is easily one of my favourite films and I completely agree with what you wrote here.
Tyler Durden as a character it’s genius because he makes a point every single time, clever, bold, and manages to create a justifiable behaviour that is so enticing and so cool. However, it isn’t right, but he portraits the bad guy so well, you almost want to root for him. But the Narrator is the other side of the equation, and it doesn’t matter how smart Tyler is, his behaviour is bad influence, ultimately.
More of the same, please.
