The whole purpose, as I understand it, of Russia and China's efforts to pursue and perfect communist government was chasing precisely the world you envision here.
I'd say you're really onto something about a large % of any given population quietly preferring the control and decision making being made for them from some higher level. I suppose that would even be a decent idea for those who would choose to live under that system...if only they could find men to run it who aren't as corrupt and hopeless as those seeking control at their hands.
