[The writer imagines himself writing an E-Mail to Philip K. Dick]
The world we are living in, at this day and age, should have been the setting for the real Man In The High Castle’s world, NOT the one you portrayed in your novelette during the Cold War period. Sorry to break the news for you, now that you have been dead and long gone for so many years, but do you see the problem? The Bad Guys won the so-called ‘Good War’, Adolf Hitler was the true Good Guy of the story all the way down the line. You paid a great disservice to the German people, just like any other writer or film-maker within this System who cares to approach the subject of WWII without daring to touch The Real Truth with a ten foot pole. You swapped the Holy ‘Winners’ for Hollywood Nazis, changing the reader’s perception on things (which became even more distorted), giving the impression that ‘if The Nazis had won the war this is how bad it would have been for the World’. So according to you, the ‘Evil-Nazis’ would have conquered the entire planet (just like FDR propounded, right?), they would have completely erased the black people of Africa overnight from the face of the Earth, and also, they would have treated the rest of humanity as ‘inferior beings’ or ‘slaves’. This last point starts ringing a bell as for certain ‘tribe’ is concerned, doesn’t it?
What I’m saying is this: In essence the drama which is happening in your book is exactly what we are suffering here nowadays but with situations being widely reversed. This phenomenon is supposed to be called ‘projection’. Jews know a thing or two about this issue (they coined the term anyway). Tell me now who is being genocided out of existence these days by ‘who’. Of course, we know the Palestinians are one of these people, but now tell me which particular race is being targeted the most for extinction. Yes, it is YOUR race, my dear Philip. So do not make me feel any sympathy for that Frank ‘Fink’ character in the novel, because I have none.
