So it's $60 plus another $78 for the six months I would play it? $138 for a game? Sorry, that's too much for me. Plus: I wouldn't sign the ToS.

Yes, except that one month is included with the initial cost of the game, so that would be for 7 months. You'll find the price is pretty standard with new premium MMOs. It is a lot of money, but I guess MMO gamers compare the hours they spend on it every month to what they might spend on other new games to keep them occupied that long. And you would expect regular content updates included at that price.

Also, I assume you're talking about the Origin ToS. You don't ever need to install or use Origin as long as you don't buy through Origin. Unlike BF3 it's not tied to the game.
