Those of you who have seen Doctor Who, you know what my avatar is. It's a red version of a certain Dalek, and his name is Dalek Sec. Daleks are my favorite villains, and Dalek Sec is my favorite Dalek.
A Dalek is a creature that lives inside an indestructible container, and it's a genius. Also, it has a lazer on the outside of it's shell, which it uses to exterminate all life forms that are not Daleks.
Why? Well... Daleks were genetically engineered and programmed to hate, to destroy, and to love nothing except the purity of the Dalek race. They were geared from the start to believe that anything non-Dalek--anything different from Daleks at all--is wrong, and it should die. Hence their catch phrase, EXTERMINATE!
Daleks can think faster than a super computer, they're bullet proof, and they can even fly. Or, as they say, ELEVATE.
Why am I explaining all this?
I just wanted to compare the Dalek race with us, the human race.
Our most primal, basic instinct; if there is a problem, we get rid of it. Right?
Some of us have adapted to the world around us, accepting different ideas from our own, and respecting differences instead of hating and fearing them, as we instinctively do.
Still, we ALL have that little bit of hatred in us, no matter how kind and accepting we are. We all have that little voice in us, saying; That thing is different from me. It's an enemy.
We all feel that way about a particular idea, be it gun control, or a particular class of people, be it goths, women, African Americans, etc.
And, at our angriest, we all feel that primal surge directed at the different person, place, thing, or idea that has provoked our beliefs, simply by being different. Everything would work out if that person/place/thing/idea just died.
And that's where we relate to Daleks. Exterminate.
We all get stressed to the point where we think; you know what? Screw it. I don't care anymore. I wish it would just die.

One more write up on humans that is out to lunch basically. 5% of the population are like that, and that tiny percent of "nephilim/annanuki/dark orverlords, orcs/trolls/draco's" (we can call them many things but theyre not like the rest of humanity, so they're not human), they do it all. They form the KKK, the Black Panthers, every terrorist group there is, they conduct all wars, they cause such trauma and dispair in inner cities that our children become gangsters, criminals, or commit suicide, they are responsible for all child abuse, porn, drug crimes, money laundering, all extermest, fundamentalism, for women in burkas,for BP, fukushima, for the destruction of nature.
Humans are good, loving and decent, minus the trauma of them.

No they're not. Im a mother of 5 boys, and have an unofficial foster young man, about to turn 19, and many of his friends here. Humans are treated to extreme trauma on a daily doses, and the vast majority live in third world conditions. A woman with her child is the most common example of a woman and the human race.
There is no grey, only a large number of people being broken and traumatized, or stressed out and programmed, therefore unable to help or change things. And a small group of evil doers.
Its extremely black and white.

Well, it could simply explained by going back to an earlier episode. The Genesis of the Daleks to see where they came from. Once you know their original form you'll likely understand why you feel as such.
