Man had created robots for everything. Robots to clean the house, to prepare meals, to work, provide comfort and fight the endless wars that intense cyberindustrialism was causing.
The planet was reduced to a wasteland. Humans were only a fragile intruder into a world that they had created.
The burden of guilt was extreme. It had become necessary to create a class of robots to take responsibility for all this.
They were the Sorry Bots.
And they were despised by all.
