ABSTRACT
The article discusses various aspects about Vietnam and the changes it has undergone in the last three decades. The people of Vietnam which celebrated the 30th anniversary of the U.S. final pullout from Saigon on April 30, 2005 are getting with the market-oriented, rich-is-glorious, we-love-anyone-with-money, China-clone program of economic reform that will hope to reconcile the internal contradictions of Marxism by making the Vietnamese people too wealthy and comfortable even to bother to dissent or try to poop the party.
