1)People with money and agenda provided money to build elite schools and colleges before schools and colleges were a norm. These schools and colleges have core elite groups like "secret societies" that pass down plans for a new century, and total domination of the world to only a select few, bred, groomed politicians and businessmen. Over generations of coercion and cover-up, through incredibly minor changes, and redefinitions, in law and language of law, the entire system can be perverted from the inside out to benefit the elite, and oppress the masses, much like every other revolution has turned out throughout history. It is an incredibly long term investment in bloodline, and name continuance, or the overall conquest of power, one of mans biggest fallabilities. One of the interesting things to note is, George Washingtons speech at the end of his presidency, warns the citizens to protect very specific things in order to ensure the system would work as designed. A smart person of the time may have noticed that was a fine instruction manual on how to set about making the system beneficial to those you favored......
2)Over generations, the price of tyranny is dulled by lack of experience, and lost memories of those who actually served in that fight. It is nearly the 1900's and the nation is growing from masses of people seeking freedom, from all countries in the world. The two-party majority that has been culled to the elite from the previously mentioned college socieities has taken a rather firm hold, and hold majority of all house and senate seats. Remember, this was a time of a more fragmented, less organized media. There were actually investigative journalists and not just reporters on the scene, but their reach to the people was limited on a national scale. They were still making minor moves to take control through law, but it was time for a real test. Prohibition comes along. The people speak out, by breaking the law en-masse and those in the know were in on smuggling liquor and running speak-easies. After enough wealth had been created through the newly formed black market, it was repealed, and the people were appeased(and the black market shifted and grew) This was the first attempt at a power-grab, or its equal for strictly internal purposes. It was different from war, since the enemy was within. The elite, deemed something wrong, and outlawed it. The people reacted timidly, the elites gained some more wealth(Kennedys and others who profitted of prohibition of alchohol) and life went on. The black market and prohibition were essential to the crash of 1929.
Here's a typical link to life in the 1920's, notice the increasing role of religion and classism in politics:
3)The crash is created by the elite, and the time is ripe for the "New Deal". America is at its knees, and needs a hero to save its economy, and their long promised dream of a bright future. F.D.R. was just the ego-driven salesman to sell it too. The bank holiday was declared, and things were put into order. He completely over-rides the Constitution, and creates a federal bank with the help of his friends J.P. Morgan and the other corporate masterminds of the time. They sell it as the answer to the future, but constant growth requires work, and the growth they have in mind is broad and all encompassing. What better way to justify higher taxes, than to hire more people, and provide more work? He blatantly attempts to mix socialism and capitalism, but says it in different words, and for different reasons. More than anything, he tries to sell this as a noble intent, but yet its irreversibility is in the executives hands. Here are some of his words, to which I note.
"The country needs and, unless I mistake its temper, the country demands bold, persistent experimentation. It is common sense to take a method and try it: If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something. The millions who are in want will not stand by silently forever while the things to satisfy their needs are within easy reach."
is from the 23rd paragraph of FDR's campaign speech at Oglethorpe University, and can be linked to at http://newdeal.feri.org/speeches/1932d.htm#23.
He sells it as easy to simply admit it fails, and try another should it fail, yet he places all the power to determine that in the executive seat, through executive powers privlidge. He has not only changed the entire economy to suit himself and his favored elites, he also has basicly crowned the executive King, by giving him ultimate authority over congress or the senate. This is the most sweeping, broad power grab in the history of this nation, and it goes un-answered until the machine of government is to big to be stopped. Most of F.D.R.'s successors have not made issue to change, or revoke executive power, and had to extend them by signature. This power is proof of coercion, as well as proof of the lack of constitutional limitation enforcement from the citizens. It is also proof that every president since, has not upheld their oath to protect the Constitution from all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC, since that power is complete power which is in essence anti-constitutional. It is also to note that it has been 156 years since we have had a President, or majority of house and senate, of anything other than Republicans and Democrats.
4)Since the end of WWII, growth has been exponential in people and technology. Much of that technology was taken right from Hitler, through his science and technology officers, who were divided between Russia, England and the U.S. after the war. Many times during the war, people of the elite were caught aiding the enemy, and actually being ENABLERs, much like Prescott Bush, Grandpappy of our current President. They actually passed the Trading With the Enemy Act to prevent people, and corporations from providing essential war materials and goods to the enemy., DURING the war. Then came the new threats to "freedom". Socialism, purposely confused with communism in speeches of politicians and media. The threat of freedom, became a world obsession with the elite. It was a tool to further both growth and their agenda, which was a double positive. It grew government agencies like mold, they literally were appearing overnight. All the better to keep the masses happy, and cover, or confuse the trail for anyone looking with bureaucracy.
Accounting of money and spending to the public, became a thing of the past. Justifying taxes was a new mission, and a lucrative business for creating pork, for the pork barrel boys. Everyone wanted on the government tit, since it was growing like a balloon and everyone was grabbing. True threats to our nation were minimal, but it could be made to be giant through propaganda and media manipulation, of the ever growing media. Korea, Vietnam, Cuba, Haiti, Columbia, Somalia, etc. were all actions to further the elite, and had nothing to do with American citizens. It was done in the name of Americans, under the control of the elite, and sold as a "necessity of liberty". I also of course have several opinions I haven't shared about why we went to war "against" Hitler, and only to Japan after Pearl Harbor, which has its own national scandal involved.
5)Since the end of the "Cold War", the elite establishment has needed to create a new enemy to maintain the peoples tolerance of taxation, spending and deficit and policing that has been fairly consistently growing over our history since the bi-partisan agenda has been adopted full-force. They each take turns abusing the taxpayers, until one convinces the public that the other is a decidedly WORSE evil. Never mind that the next, or a few elections later, it will still be a choice of the same two again, who barely differ, worry about today, and vote for the lesser evil of today.
So as you say, they have piecemeal, minutely progressed the system to complete and utter un-Constitutionality. They have done the same thing Hitler did, which was gain the most expensive, impressive armies in the world, the power to command them at will, and the power to restrict citizen lives to the point of working slaves(as far as it effects the establishment), who make minimal wages which is extorted back to the system through taxation, licensing, property re-possesion and extortion through pork barrel politics. All the while, rights are being illegalized through law, and people are being turned against each other through the media, so as to create an image of nearly equal divide, downplaying the support for those who feel they aren't represented by the majority parties. People are so set against each other ideologically now, that both parties are starting to worry since the middle east gauntlet has exploded. Now, with the extremism of terrorists, people are starting to see that paying attention to government affairs is somewhat vital to ensuring safety of our nation. People are waking up to realize what Washington meant by "entangling alliances" now, and why they really fucked up since they have let Executive Powers go to the point of irreversability, short of public revolt or of OVERWHELMING show of support(which can't be acheived without media). They actually answered the minor complaints of over-reach of government, by creating more over-reach, with the new Patriot-Act, which is as un-patriotic as it gets.
