Creative application and development of Marxism - Leninism to the Party’s building and leadership of the revolution in Vietnam

Theoretical development on the transition to socialism in Vietnam

(LLCT) - The main points of Marx’ and Engels’ theories of socialism include eradication of human exploitation, class and ethnic oppression, inequality by abolishing private ownership of productive materials, and establishing public ownership in order to bring about economic development and good lives for the people. The ten solutions they put forward in the Manifesto of the Communist Party published in February 1848 focused on fulfilling the objectives of socialism. They criticized reactionary socialist movements including feudalist, petite bourgeoisie, and capitalist socialism. This proved the need for a corrected perception of socialism as a scientific branch. F. Engels emphasized that if socialism was to become a science it had to be, first and foremost, based on realities(1).

Ho Chi Minh’s creations in establishing the Communist Party of Vietnam

Lenin instructed that, “We not at all regard Marx’s theory as something fully completed and inviolable; in the contrary, we believe that it has only laid the foundation for a science that the socialists need to further develop it in all aspects, if they do not want to lag behind life.”(1)
