ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the social conditions in Vietnam as of June 1979. The rulers of Hanoi, Vietnam are described as aging Stalinists who aim to fulfill the dream of Ho Chi Minh to create an Indochinese empire. This imperial dream has cost the lives of thousands of people in China alone and has kept its survivors impoverished. In South Vietnam, a number of people are designated in re-education camps. Although people from Northern Vietnam have more freedom, its leaders have created a nation of informers motivated by fear.
