back to 1789:
Charles Beard's An Economic Interpretation of the Constitution.
You'll never look at that document the same way again - I guarantee.
It was written to effectively create a state aparatus where one did not functionally exist, for the purpose of protecting and entrenching, economic power.
There's another, titled Hamilton's Curse by Thomas J. DiLorenzo. (https://mises.org/store/Hamiltons-Curse-P534.aspx)
Hamilton was a known stooge of the Bankers. When you see the provisions of the Constitution he fought for and the reasoning he used to explain away why they wouldn't result in tyranny, you'll see quite clearly that everything that has come to pass was BY DESIGN. (though I suspect Hamilton and the Bankers of the day didn't think it would take this long)
