If Tyler Durden made use of the internet for Fight Club and Project Mayhem, how would he do it? How would he inform and recruit people? How would he give out assignments? How we keep updated with what his group members are up to? Would he be more or less successful and yield similar or different results? How would the story change if conducted this way? Think not so much in terms of Tyler and the narrator as character but Fight Club and Project Mayhem as social groups and movements.

If Tyler Durden had the internet as a tool to promote his theoretical views he would basically be another Hitler. Why I say this is because the internet is a tool that reaches the world globally. And from the movie itself it exemplifies how he was able to spread this organization as one man is varies cities and states. Who’s to say that with the internet Tyler couldn’t spread his message out to people in other countries? Because of his dominance as a man and the way he speaks to people in persuading them to follow his words plus the internet would have evolved 45% of the world’s men in Project Mayhem.
