Rapid decision-making capability, and little opposition. Also, a great deal can be accomplished in a fairly short period of time. A beneficent dictator can get more done, more quickly, for his subjects. However, it is never possible to ascertain if a beneficent dictator will be followed by a despotic one. Hence, democracy has seemed to be a safer alternative.

Then you also have more revolutionary movements which are created when Autocracies are installed such as: Advancements in medical science, military science, depending on the Autocrat in culture too.

The strengths in autocracys lay in looking after thr wel being of a small center of indivduals. No Autocracy or Dictatorship has ever been able to control a country it economy or the well being and happiness of the country people. the only real strength that lays in an autocracy is that it is able to take care of the autocrats at the expense of those that are not. A man or group of men that have to look after their own Authoritative position first and then be able to make decisions on matters they know nothing of is bound to fail, as is shown again and again throughout history. The shining examples of a forward movement in the arts, philosophy, science etc happened when autocrats and dictators were not involved.
