The Man In the High Castle & Our Own Alternative Reality

When the webmistress of this site asked me to do an article about The Man in the High Castle and the current state of politics, I joked that it must be because I'm Jewish! In truth, that's exactly why she asked me to write about it. And while I do watch the show, I hadn't thought of anything to say. It's two seasons in and most of the think pieces on it have been thought. So I said I'd take a pass.

But something was haunting me about the idea; why hadn't the prompt struck a chord with me? And if the show had nothing to say to me about politics then why was it interesting and why was I watching it?
