What does an authoritarian system thrive on?

I was thinking about something like crisis (economic or social) etc that can help an authoritarian system implement their agenda. I need more definite words, though. Help?

  1. An authoritarian system can thrive on any weakness in the country. Although, many Italians hated the dictator Mussolini, they did boast that at least "he made the trains run on time." This was seen as a major improvement over the previous time when the trains were notoriously undependable.
