I saw a idiom “my way or the high way” in a tweet.
I searched what does it mean in web and found that “”It suggests an ultimatum like "take it or leave it" “”.
This explanation is so simple and easy to understand for me.
I like that simplicity.:-)

Anyway, I have a question.
The “highway” means the highway...?
I suppose it is a metaphor of “the other way”, is it correct??
