1. Problem:

Propaganda and training is the voice of the Party, honestly reflecting and promoting new, positive factors, bravely fighting against backward and negative moral phenomena, life style; Practically building a healthy public opinion, encouraging the masses to actively participate in the fight against deterioration in morality and lifestyle, especially among cadres and party members. In addition, the work of propaganda and propaganda also actively contributes to improving the spiritual life, building a new moral foundation and a new way of life in society.

In the current period, under the impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Revolution 4.0), the new requirements of the task of building and defending the socialist Vietnamese Fatherland, the opposition of the forces hostile to the Vietnamese revolution, with the strategy of “peaceful evolution”, riots and subversion, propaganda and propaganda work were constantly renewed in both content and form to meet requirements. mission. In the fight against degradation in morality and lifestyle, associated with the implementation of Directive No. 05-CT/TW dated May 15, 2016 of the Politburo on “Promoting learning and following the ideology of the Communist Party of Vietnam”. Ho Chi Minh's ideology, morality and style”, Central Resolution 4 (Term XII) on strengthening Party building and rectification, preventing and repelling the deterioration of political ideology, morality, lifestyle, and expressions self-evolving, self-transforming internally. The work of propaganda and propaganda has made many positive contributions, fully demonstrating its leading role in detecting, fighting to condemn the phenomena of degradation in morality and lifestyle, doing well the task of social criticism, expressing positive factors, good examples, good examples, good deeds. “Strengthen the propaganda of the Party's lines and guidelines, the State's policies and laws; actively orient the Party's propaganda information and fight and oppose false and hostile views. Strongly and widely deploying information and propaganda on Party building work” [2, p.214].

However, in practice, there are times when, on the front of the fight and prevention of moral degradation, the lifestyle still reveals many limitations and inadequacies that are not commensurate with the requirements and tasks set out by the real situation. The practicality, predictability, and detection of complex issues in the evolution of political thought and public opinion have not been really active, and their sensitivity has not been fully promoted. The quality of political education, study, and grasping of the Party's resolutions and directives is sometimes not high enough, and advanced examples and models are not enough to repel negativity. The management of information is still loose, there is a lack of strong enough solutions to fight effectively with false information, counter misrepresentations, etc., promoting the role and responsibility of propaganda and propaganda. The effectiveness of training in the struggle and prevention of deterioration in a part of party cadres and people is not high. “The work of information and propagation of a number of lines and guidelines of the Party, policies and laws of the State is not timely, the form is not diversified. Fighting against false and hostile views is sometimes, in some places, not highly combative, still passive and confused. The forecasting and grasping of the ideological situation of cadres and party members, the people's thoughts and aspirations, and the orientation of public opinion are sometimes not timely. The results of the implementation of a number of Party guidelines on management of press, communication, publishing, internet and social network management have not met the requirements” [2, p.172].

The decline in political ideology, morality and lifestyle of a part of party cadres has not been reversed, complicated developments, wasteful and negative corruption still take place in many places. focus on the number of party members with positions and rights in the state apparatus. Hostile, reactionary forces and opportunistic elements fully exploit the manifestations of moral degradation and lifestyle of a part of party cadres and members to distort, fabricate and oppose the revolutionary cause. and the national renewal process initiated and led by our Party. “A part of cadres, party members and civil servants degraded in morality and lifestyle and violated public service ethics. There is no consensus in awareness and action about Vietnam's cultural and human value system and the link between economic development and national defense and security, cultural and social development, and environmental protection. [2, p.78].

2. Research content

In order to properly promote the role of propaganda and propaganda work in the fight against moral degradation and current lifestyles in the Party as well as in society, it is considered that public employees are considered public employees.

For propaganda officers themselves, it is a very special profession: it is both political, science and art. Therefore, the mind, virtue and reach and talent of the propaganda cadres must be expressed into specific and specific criteria for the cadres to strive accordingly.
