Nah that's too small.
Think about it. How would you do it?
You would need to establish legitimacy in a bad atmosphere of mistrust. A civil war we know will be staged in which the initial response would come
from our intellectual citizenry. The ones who pose the greatest threat. What did the Nazi´s do to Poland? killed all intellectuals first.
Then you would need to find the muscle those intellectuals hoped to use in the revolt. Those in the military would be found out and killed in short
order. The remaining population would consist of people who are less informed and less prone to resistance. A programmed culture, the other third of
the population. Here we assume only a third would support the revolt another would oppose it and the last third would be the programmed future worker
After all that is done and you found out the roles of the future resistance, you create a war that seems unwinnable. A war with the great Russia. Then
the remaining rebellion would lose all validity in light of a foreign threat. The winning of the war would establish validity to the totalitarian
government implemented to deal with it. The remaining challenge is simply dividing the broken and conquered world amongst the few elite with an
appropriate population of subjects. rewrite history and wham, in another 100 years you are the saviors of the chaotic past that brought generic
engineering in time to save us all.
Honor the class system that brought us out of the "dark ages" and revealed the true light of enlightenment. The new world religion. The "god" is
enlightenment and the access is controlled by the upper classes that have more information as well as a cemented position based on genetics.
In enough time and with enough freedom of editing, history could be written stating that these elite men were the Gods that saved mankind and even
created it in their image. Anything is possible. Especially if they solve the riddle of immortal life,( genetic alterations of the human genome for
