One feature of many developing countries is the mixture of imperial and traditional law affecting access to land, property, etc. And village councils, that are a combination of older egalitarian rules with colonial corrupt  legality creating the ambiguities of village councils.

Or the older "communist" currents like Fidel Castro or those that have not taken power, like the Maoists in Nepal? Or the bourgeois parties that resist them, like the Middle Eastern dictatorships?
