A normative belief in public deliberation underlies the institutionalization of argument. In a democracy, when no side has the power to simply impose their view (and they often get that power by having won prior arguments and institutionalizing their victory), a decision often comes about as a result of the process of argument. The scope for argument is decreased in authoritarian settings. Specifically, one cannot neglect the important role of both simple allegiance (unreasoned faith) or unquestioned belief in the normality and legitimacy of certain institutions and practices, and fear, which can be quite effective in holding authoritarian states together.
