Transcript of Fight Club'n and such
“Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering.” Tyler
“We are all part of the same compost heap" Tyler FC starts to transition:
“We want you, not your money. As long as you’re at fight club, you’re not how much money you’ve got in the bank. You’re not your job. You’re not your family, and you’re not who you tell yourself… You’re not your name… You’re not your problems. You’re not your age. You are not your hopes. You will not be saved… we are all going to die someday” Project Mayhem Evolves:
1. You don’t ask questions.
2. You don’t ask questions.
3. No excuses.
4. No lies.
5. Trust Tyler.
“Listen up, maggots. You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else.” Tyler “Consumer and employee behavior are very similar.” - The Art of Followership Kelly's model of Followership His name was Robert Paulson... “Bob had been a champion body builder; you know that chest expansion program you see on late night TV… that was his idea.” - Jack Bob was the victim of society's definition of what masculinity is. Bob became the catalyst for Jacks psychosis...Tyler introduced himself Jack - “Losing all hope was freedom” Fight Club gave back what had been taken from Bob by society’s unrealistic demands. At Fight Club Bob is a man again. Yes man to Die Hard Bob was just getting by... a survivor. During this transition Bob also morphed from a survivor to a yes man, doing all that was asked of him without question. He was the second initiate into Project Mayhem but he never took on any leader role. Catalyst for and the destruction of Tyler Durden.
Bob became a martyr Fight Club:
“After fighting everything else got the volume turned down. You could deal with anything.”
“During the week we were regular ozzy and harriet but every sat night we were finding something out. We were finding out more and more that we were not alone”
“You weren’t alive anywhere like you were there, but fight club only exists between the hours of when fight club begins and when fight club ends”
“Even if I could tell someone they had a good fight, I wouldn’t be talking with the same man. Who u were in fight club, was not who you were in the rest of the world” “Some people believe that motivation for transformation can’t be developed short of a crisis,” –Ira Chaleff “Neither is it Ethical to Comply with or Enforce Rules if They Impede the Accomplishment of the Oganization’s Purpose, Values, or Basic Human Decency” – Ira Chaleff Did Raymond Become a veterinarian? If he did, was it for the right reasons? Were Tyler’s Intentions Successful and Helpful? “Most People would say life is a raging stream of ‘Have-to-dos’ vs. ‘want-to-dos’” –Kevin Cashman Food for Thought Was Tyler a Gift or a Curse to Raymond? “What’s the Difference Between Tough Love and Acting like a Jerk?” –Ricki Lake “The Key empowerment of followers is that in salient groups, leaders are only influential to the extent that they are seen to be prototypical, and it is the followers who largely construct through communication shared representation of their group’s identity and associated prototype.” – Michael A. Hogg (The art of Followership) Fight Club is an exaggerative yet all too real story that lends reasonability to why we, in life, tend to play the follower—ignoring the leader within us. It is only when we can recognize that every move we make, be it follower or leader, is an act of leadership in our lives. Jack, essentially lead a group of followers looking for a prototypical individual that they could relinquish their selves to. Tyler is the result of Jack’s own fear to lead his own life. Nonetheless, Jack was a leader of which he himself could not comprehend—hence his alter persona. It was not until Tyler instilled the courage to be aware of one’s potential that Jack became aware of his effect in life and on others around him—this ultimately brought him full circle to being face to face with himself and Tyler again. How often in life do we believe that we are truly following… only to find that who we thought was in front of us was not even there? Despite ourselves, there is always someone using us as a model—follower-leader/leader-follower behavior needs no awareness to exist… but it sure does help.
