In the distant future, the human race has become extinct, leaving behind the machines they created. These robots are very similar to us and are run by separate AI. They share our emotions and language, and also the concepts of friend and family relationships. They are also curious about the universe, and are programmed to collaborate with one another in order to achieve a common goal.
Why would they be interested in politics? Isn't it better for them to avoid having different perspectives on issues so that there won't be any disagreements or conflicts of interest?
