Marxism and Leninism on Political Power and the Implications for the Fight against Hostile and Wrong Views

Marxism and Leninism Wednesday, 17:50 12-05-2021

Marxism and Leninism consider political power as an objective and inevitable phenomenon in class society. Political power relations are universal in all political regimes. Political power is the central and ultimate goal that any class and social group wish to achieve and control. Holding political power is controlling fundamental and essential means of maintaining interest relations with other classes in a way that benefits the controlling group the most. In socialism, the working class is the ruling class, who leads the construction of socialism, protection of people’s interests and national interest, and protects national independence and sovereignty. In the current context, hostile forces attacked the ideological foundation of the Communist Party, denying Marxism and Leninism, denouncing the Party’s and State’s views and policies. Therefore, it is important to research and apply the scientific and revolutionary theory of Marxism and Leninism, especially about political power in the fight against hostile and wrong views.

Abstract: Marxist-Leninist philosophy, founded by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, was successfully actualized and developed by Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. It opened a new era in political thought and initiated an era of transition from capitalism to socialism worldwide. Currently, taking advantage of the collapse of the socialist model in the Soviet Union and some Eastern European countries, many reactionary forces have rejected Marxism-Leninism which considered the ideology of the working class and the ideological foundation of Communist Parties in the world including Vietnam. This article clarifies the lasting value of Marxist- Leninist philosophy including its doctrine of unity of scientific, revolutionary, and humanistic values, thereby contributing to protecting the ideological foundation of the Communist Party of Vietnam. It also outlines the fight against wrong and hostile views against Vietnam.
