the people in fight club aren't the downwardly mobile blue-collar workers being crushed by neoliberalism and globalization, though.
they're corporate middle-class types who are bored precisely because they are living lives of plenty. the notable IKEA catalogue monologue, for instance. these are people importing (then) desirable goods from the world marketplace, not having their jobs exported because of the same. they are victims of too much consumerism not structural inequalities and deprivation.
if you're talking about the appeal of grunge, as a pretty geographically locatable thing in the PNW, then yes, fair enough.
Downwardly mobile blue-collar types "identified" with Fight Club because masculinity is "under threat" and a bunch of insurance towers were taken down.
Preaching to the choir really, I've heard all the "middle aged white men are the bad guy" manufactured victimhood stuff and some of the "Lesbian teachers are pushing the gay agenda" from more dedicated conservatives. I watched Fight Club with conservative people who were cheering it on for "reclaiming the rite of red-blooded masculinity." What a hero figure! Don't think 99% of them could even name the author without a google check. I'd take Chuck P.
"The government can only push people so far!" *eagerly* "Better hope nobody breaks into my house, I'll be ready!" "Come and take them!"

The lizard people have offed another of their own Jean-Luc Brunel, seems like a piece of work who was able to run free for years and years in multiple countries with multiple accusations against him. Sad! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Luc_Brunel
On Wednesday, Demi Moore announced on Instagram that her ex-husband Bruce Willis, the prolific action-movie star, had recently been diagnosed with aphasia — a disorder that affects the brain’s language center and a person’s ability to understand or express speech — and that he would be stepping away from acting.
“To Bruce’s amazing supporters, as a family we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities,” Moore’s post reads. “As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him.”
