The Man in the High Castle: I do believe my father wants what’s best, but this can’t be the way. Books Included Season 2 (Full Season)

The current timeline crucially depends on a fundamental misreading of a documentary film (fake news?), which seems to karmically doom almost any critical reading of the series thus far (all reading is misreading), or even any comparison to Dick's book.
