Best Answer

Autocratic rule may result from a chaotic situation which can be brought under control only by a very strong and accomplished leader. The problem has been that once the chaos has been replaced with an ordered system, the autocrat usually continues to rule rather than transition to a more democratic form of government.

George Washington is a counter example. He was highly accomplished: both the General of the Armies and the richest man in the nation. He took the presidency by the almost unanimous consent of the American people. But 8 years later he stepped down from power voluntarily. King George said he did not believe Washington would do that, "but if he does, he will be the greatest man in the world." To this day, it is a rare thing in history for such a leader to do.
