Fight Club has to be one of the most misinterpreted movies out there.

Marxists will tell you it's about rebelling against the system.
Feminists will tell you it's about "toxic masculinity".

When in reality, it's about suppressed masculinity and its consequences on men & society
The problem:

Expecting men, who have been hunter-gatherers/warriors for millennia to suddenly adjust to a new societal structure where we're forced to work in soul-less corporate cubicles.

You can't expect few years of societal change to reverse thousands of years of evolution
What does Edward Norton, who also works in a soul-less corporate setup, do to alleviate his suppressed natural programming?

He organises a fight club wherein he, and other men like him, can healthily express their masculinity.

Masculinity isn't toxic, it's who we are.
This is also one of the main driving factors behind the rise in lone-wolf attacks, especially in societies with the above culture

Because, among other factors like fatherless families, men's inner instincts have been caged with no productive outlet for their natural programming.
The solution: Military conscription.

Masculinity is a wild spirit that just needs discipline & direction. We have to allow men to be themselves in order for them to be healthy both mentally & physically.

I feel bad for men who've never gotten into a fist fight.
