Thanks for your message. 

I was tempted to say "Solipsism. Look It Up." 

But then I thought such a caption would come across as condescending, particularly to people like you who already know its meaning. 

Solipsism is a Big Deal. 

The fact that's solipsism is barely on America's radar is a classic case of not being able to grapple with a problem because we can't even name it. 

The history of solipsism (as a psycho-philosophical-academic "category") traces back to the ancient Greek, Gorgias of Leontini. 

Gorgias details with startling accuracy what is now taking place in America's fake-news-alternative-facts matrix.
