Endogenous strength to prevent “cultural invasion” (Part 1)

14/04/2014
Culture is the root as endogenous strength of the nation. In oder to weaken intrinsic strength, the hostile forces have quietly and aggressively invaded through many cultural activities with sophisticated and wicked tactics.
 “Information empire” in a flat world
Executing the motto “Investing 1 USD in culture more effectively than invest 10 USD in military”, the years , the Western media has spent millions of dollars on facilities, equipments and training technical manpower to form “information empire" with clearly purpose of transforming ideology, cultural values in Vietnam, overturning the social moral standards in our country in which they regarded the young generation as “the center”, intellectual circles and artists (especially those with complex and extreme views) as “the key roles”, a number of officials (both retired and incumbent) with multi-dimensional viewa as “key factors”.
According to authorities, 62 foreign radio stations have  Vietnamese programs; 390 magazines, 88 publishers, 397 websites and social network sites with overseas servers often provide and post information against Vietnam. In 2013, 475 private websites misrepresented thousands of articles to smear image of the country; 250 websites, blogs, forums posted articles against the amendment of the 1992 Constitution; 245 websites and blogs contained reactionary content. Besides, nearly 58,000 documents entitled “psychological war” that the security forces had discoveredand collected in 2013 (an increase of more than 5,200 documents in comparision with 201), in which more than 7,100 ones were reactionary documents.
Representative of the Information Security Office, Ministry of Public Security said that: One of the subtle and sinister tricks have been conducted recently by hostile forces is fully taking advantages of the internet, e-mail, messages... to spread negative information to some high-level officials in an attempt to confound information, causing internal disunity especially on such a sensitive time of personnel selection or election. More remarkable, nearly 400 websites, blogs impersonating members of the Political Bureau, the Party Central Committee, Party Secretary, Provincial Committee and senior officials of the departments and ministries, branch offices have been discovered. More than 130 articles, clips, video among them were found out with abusive content. If these images and articles were not prevented promptly and thoroughly, it would spread fast to cause considerable doubt among the people and  impact seriously on people's confidence in the Party, the State and the socialist regime.
“Publishing activities on Internet”
There are many ways to spread the malicious information including publish and distribute books, documents, literary and artistic works with bad content on the internet. The hostile forces consider this way as a “low cost” infiltration but “maximum efficiency”.

In recent years, the trend of publishing on the internet has been increasing with ever-expanding scal. According to Mr. Chu Van Hoa, Director of Bureau of Publication (Ministry of Information and Communication), in the past, the external forces used to publish objectionable, depraved, malicious content and smuggling via the border gate, port, aviation into our country. But recently, this traditional method tends to decrease instead of the “publishing method via internet” with more sophisticated properties and more formidable harms.
