Deep down, the narrator of "Fight Club" sees through the ideals of corporate America and wants to rise above them; he just doesn’t know how to until he is introduced to Tyler Durden. If he is supposed to represent “everyman,” then what does that say? Perhaps everyone has a Tyler Durden inside of them and is able to rise above the consumerist culture in their own way, just perhaps a less extreme way that does not involve blowing up buildings or causing mayhem. The way that "Fight Club" is able to get viewers to think and to challenge what they are accustomed to is what made it the classic that it became.

Some critics claim that Tyler Durden was a hypocrite, preaching freedom while commanding his own personal cult. They support this by noting how members of Project Mayhem acted in blind obedience to Tyler's orders and seemed to lack individuality. But according to Chuck Palahniuk,  "The purpose of Project Mayhem was to coach people beyond their own idea of their abilities. People had to be ordered past their own fears. Eventually the organization would vanish, leaving behind fully developed former members."   However, the story ended long before this point would have been reached.
