In the 1996 Chuck Palahniuk novel Fight Club as well as the recent movie which deviates very little from the book the author uses a club in which grown men fistfight as a vehicle for a plot and analysis of modern culture After hearing of recent instances of life imitating art poorly in a student Fight Club in the Presidents Park dorms I thought it poignant to begin a short discussion of the bookmovie in which the fighting scenes were meant as analogous devices to examine questions and not a pro-wrestling guide to body slamming ones cousin The books premise lies on the assumption that todays society although created primarily by males is one which relies on smooth day-to-day operation which females are better suited to exist in The premise also lies on the assumption that todays western society devoid of war and starvation is the fruition of thousands of years of men using their strength and aggression to build something And the book questions in a sense what happens when there is little of necessity left to build Yes men can create new corporations with their brains or entertain with their athletic skills but neither is a necessity like bread or water What happens when male testosterone is no longer useful in society A good analogy would be a superior boxer What happens when that boxer has beaten everyone else Who is left to fight And of course within this thought lies one of the plot devices the author uses to convey his questions the Fight Club which two characters in the book start But the book takes that thought a step further by in fact saying that when men truly unleash their inner selves they cannot exist within modern society and modern society cannot exist with them Have modern men compromised themselves and if so is that good or bad Of course the movie containing many well-choreographed fistfight scenes
