68 There was, as a consequence of the Seventh Congress, a development which would later have considerable importance: the loosening of the links which tied the ECCI to the national sections. 69 Latin America in the Comintern The bureaucratic headquarters The anti-federalism of the Third International made it very distrustful of any attempt to promote different policies for different areas, still less to let them take shape, or even be discussed in situ. If Latin America was in some way an exception, it was more apparent than real.

60 In any case, there was a clear reversal of the position taken in the Third Congress. Besides the fact that the colonial question was, so to speak, 're-entered' at the Fourth Congress (1922), there were two other elements that are worth noting. The first one is that, as Roy said, the Comintern had realized after the Second Congress that the colonial world was not homogeneous, that there were some countries with a strong bourgeoisie, others where the bourgeoisie was very weak, and finally some very primitive countries.

When studying the Comintern and its history, it would be unwise to take into consideration only parties which belonged as full members to the Third International, because that would mean not only leaving out some parties of a certain significance, but moreover, ignoring what might well have been the most interesting part of the history of some parties. The best solution might be to take the list of parties invited to the Communist Conference of Buenos Aires in 1929, perhaps completing it with the others accepted as new members of the International at the Seventh World Congress of 1935.
