Democratic Culture in Vietnamese Traditional Society

HO SI QUY

Tóm tắt


Vietnam has a history of thousands years. During the process of national foundation and defense, Vietnam has encountered innumerable difficulties in the resistance wars against aggressors, the territorial expansion, and the conquest of the sea, in order to gain national development and leave heritage of cultural diversity and humanity with particular identity for the next generations. Vietnamese culture is, therefore, worthy of praise and pride in many aspects. For the entire Vietnamese history, democratic culture can be considered more or less traditional heritage with practical evidences. However, it would be an exaggeration to say democratic culture in Vietnamese traditional society played a significant role as a premise for the modern democracy; it would be also too far, if someone felt proud of the traditional democratic culture in Vietnam. "To achieve human rights, freedom, and democracy is an irreversible trend and they are really objective requirements of mankind. Vietnam is not an exception".
