That won't ever happen. It's human nature to group together and form "teams".
Eventually it will happen.What is more efficient, A party of people or a supercluster of hyper-advanced AI's that is programmed to run the processes of government?
Political parties are almost identical to sports teams. Look at how rabid the fans for sports teams are, and then compare them to members of any given political party. Both groups believe their party/team can do no wrong, and would follow them fanatically to the gates of hell and back.
Again they will go extinct like empires and most monarchs. Machine AI's are better at running a government than people.
Hell, the Republicans and Democrats ought to make uniforms and jerseys.
"yeah red and blue authoritarian teams. Only difference is that one is red and the other is blue. "
You know, I ought to do that and sell them as a sarcastic joke, pretending to be wholey honest and sincere...just to see how many people actually want a Democrat or Republican "uniform" to wear.
I'd probably get rich and very depressed at the same time.
