He believes society has grown custom to useless things and we don’t need. He states that although you might think you own your belongings, your belongings own you because if something were to happen to your things you would be devastated, so Tyler wants to put an end to all of that. He is trying to make everyone re envision their way of life. He wants to start anew and the only way to reach that goal was to reset everyone’s credit to zero by destroying several buildings of importance. He gained many followers by manipulation and helped them all hit rock bottom, and by doing so they are able to destroy their false self and over, because only when you have reached an all time low you will not have anywhere else to go but up, his belief was once you hit bottom that when you can truly achieve perfection.

This proves that even after Isis warns him about how Set will do him harm, he still goes. He fails to see the real truth about him.
Judging a book by its cover is a mistake because it leads to wasted time. The Great Gatsby, a novel written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, is a book that reflects that same idea of beauty always falling short. Through a semi-reliable narrator, Fitzgerald writes about obsessions and appearances to show his readers how the “American Dream” is falling apart. Right from the start, Nick, the narrator, introduces himself by giving insight on the way he was raised. His father had told him that whenever he felt “like criticizing anyone…[to] just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had” (Fitzgerald 1) .
