Man in The High Castle should be a low-budget movie, there is nearly no action and most of the story is about the universe (how much could Nazis and Imperial Japan uniforms cost? Even adding a Colt replica and a Mickey Mouse watch shouldn't put the thing over budget) and questions about what is genuine...
Let's hope that Ridley'll understand that!
About Forever War, have you read Marciano's comic adaptation? It's quite good.

There are many rural societies used to hardships where honor values are extremely important and held even by the poorest amongst them.

But when everything is a lie like in eastern europe "socialism" (in Goodbye Lenin an interesting scene is when the hero's mother, a law-abiding gentle at heart communist, uses PartyTongue to assert her points when writing to the bureaucracy: she makes it clear that she's seeing through the veil of lies, but has to cover her actions with the same veils for them to be accepted and effective) the moral virtues are usually considered a lie too....

Either you have a car crash into some federal property or you go into a riot (even without human deaths or injury) which destroys government property and you're a terrorist?
Some group of militants enters a government agency and tears some documents and they become terrorists, which means anybody helping them is now a terrorist?

Or the recent news item about a bunch of Muslims attacking a French synagogue in response to Israeli activity in Gaza?

Well, this one at least was wrongly reported...
The "bunch of muslims" responded to active provocations from a pro-israeli terrorist organization (banned in the states and Israel but surprisedly not in France) whose members gathered in front of the Synagogue.
Obviously, the ones responding to the LDJ provocations weren't the ones which the most brain, so confusion occurred.
