This is an interesting quote. Jack ask Tyler this when they’re sitting next to each other in the airplane. Tyler replies with “Why? So you can pretend that you’re interested?”
Think about it for a second. How many fake people do you know? Are you one of them? People act interested all the time, isn’t that fucking annoying? Every single day, millions of people overact… Especially women. Then they talk shit about you behind your back. That’s just too common nowadays. Why do people have this need to constantly chit-chat, and act like they are SOOOO interested in what you’re saying? “Oh, woooow, really? Oh my god, no way?” It’s so obvious, but people still keep on doing it.
The problem is that there’s nothing we can do about that. The only thing we can do is STOP faking interest all the time. Why do people even fake it all the time? So they could look polite or what? Fuck that shit. We are too afraid of public opinion. Who cares what society will think of us?!
Fear is controlling most people’s lives. Will you let it control your life too? Fear of this, fear of that, hundreds of fears. Do you know what fear is? Let me tell you… Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real. That’s what fear is. It’s bullshit. Don’t let it control your life. You have to wake up, you have to stop giving a fuck about what other people think of you.
Who are they? Why is their opinion so important to you? Do you want to put yourself in more slavery by letting fear of their opinion restrict your actions, your true self?
Why are so many people afraid to just relax, not give a fuck and be themselves? – The answer is PUBLIC OPINION. You are afraid of what other people will think of you. Fuck that shit. Who are they? Will they help you get rich? Will they save your life? No, most of them won’t. So why give a fuck about what they think of you?
Not giving a fuck is freedom. When you have the balls to do and say whatever the fuck you want – THAT my friend is true freedom. That is Fight Club’s philosophy.
