I have a question

and am putting it here:

"In all the years I’ve been a journalist, I’ve never know public consciousness to have risen as fast as it’s rising today. Yes, its direction and shape is unclear, partly because people are now deeply suspicious of political alternatives, and because the Democratic Party has succeeded in seducing and dividing the electoral left. And yet this growing critical public awareness is all the more remarkable when you consider the sheer scale of indoctrination, the mythology of a superior way of life, and the current manufactured state of fear." from http://www.democracynow.org/2007/8/7/freedom_next_time_filmm...

specifically these words: ..."and because the Democratic Party has succeeded in seducing and dividing the electoral left."

I do not know what he is talking about specifically. Do you understand?

I already replied earlier titled "Motives" but am doing some reading and found this and want to understand those words. I think this article that I am reading is helping me. But I am still asking myself, how do I know this to be the truth. How do I know that this is not the same lies but a different tune. So, please, bear with me. My mind is not closed. But I have no way of knowing the truth. Who says Pilger is telling the truth? Maybe he works for the Soviets and is exploiting Western weaknesses. We, the West, have many enemies, or so it seems, and it seems we have probably made many enemies in the last 50 years.

I realize I am sidetracked from bookwork. I hope you can bear with me in that respect as well.
