As I recall, Tezuka used robots as metaphors for the servant class.

RUR was, if I recall correctly, the origin of the word ''robot''. Before RUR, mechanical people were called ''automatons''. The word ''robot'' was a play on words, deriving from the Czech ''robota'' meaning ''serfdom''. So yes, robots have always been a metaphor for the servant class.
