n 1943 the then Party General Secretary Trường Chinh wrote the Outline on Vietnamese Culture (also known as the 1943 Outline on Culture), using Marxism and the Party's and leader Nguyễn Ái Quốc's guidelines, emphasising that the content, nature, organisation, and development orientation of a cultural revolution can only be associated with the national liberation revolution, and that a cultural revolution can be realised when the political revolution has succeeded.
The document defined that Vietnamese culture, consisting of ideology, learning, and arts, “will be liberated by the democratic revolution and freed from colonialist shackles to catch up with the world's neo-democratic culture." VNS
