I dunno about you guys, but I'm sick and tired of the marginalisation of dictatorship-loving people, not everyone wants a liberal and free society. Sometimes dictatorships don't want to be called deplorables, nor be put into one basket. It's not cool, dictators can be smart and funny, and it's time society accepted dictators as who they want to be and how they want you to be.

In theory, if there was a benevolent dictator who did all the right things and was an overwhelmingly positive influence on society, then yeah, it removes all the needless bureaucracy and, at times, painstakingly slow decision making of a democracy.

Obviously though, such a dictator is never likely to appear, so me being my cynical self, it'll have to be a nay.

Well if society lets a dictator shine and blossom before trying to take them down, then maybe they could do well.
