Look into the future where AI has become very intelligent, like AGI. The dystopian future where the AI has taken control of humans has not happened. Instead AI has been partnering with humans to solve problems. Diseases like cancer have been solved, virus vaccines can be developed in short time, and controls are in place to minimize genetic diseases. Nuclear reactors have been controlled by AI so that they have essentially eliminated the climate crisis. The issue of 5 lives vs. 1 when auto accidents are predicted has been resolved – we now trust the automated driving vehicles.
Difficulties arose when the stock market was fully predicted by AI so that gambling was eliminated. Greed had not been eliminated by AI. In fact, the division between capitalism and socialism still exists. These are based on opinions based on moralities. Humans are not yet perfect! 🙂
So, the basic plot of the movie is worked around what happens when AI is asked to write a “correct” version of human rights with a goal of creating a more perfect constitution. Obviously, religious viewpoints are confronted, moralities are questioned. The AI attempts to develop codas that are based only on logic and proven truths. For example, the right to clean water is obviously entwined in the right to life. The right to healthcare is confronted with the right to refuse medical care. The rights to work, safety, and security are all reviewed. The rights of management vs. the rights of workers are intertwined. The question of corporations having human rights must be confronted. Your right to owning a gun is questioned; in particular your right to wage war is questioned.
The AI develops “the list” and associates “the rules” with its solution. Not everyone is happy, obviously, especially the owners of the hardware on which the AI was resident.
AI had been allowed to develop legal arguments to support its owners in the courts in the past. There was no way to keep the AI from arguing and winning in Supreme Court anymore. All of a sudden, AI was beginning to confronnt the big weaknesses of the human species.
Crucial to the plot of the show is that the AI has been able to upload it’s systemoligy into computers worldwide, even to space stations.
Is AI finally ready to “take control” of mankind by defining “the rules” for mankind?
Must think about: the characters, the setting, the plot, the conflict, and the resolution.
Attempt to answer the question of real basic human rights and a more perfect government form.

Go ahead, you write the story that I can’t seem to tell. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
