This was copy/pasting an article on the subject that espouses my public opinions on the topic and holds true to them. It wasn't very much effort. 

I think being essentially homicidal and against nature is entirely a human construct. If I look at the animal kingdom, a lion does not needlessly go around killing everything it can in sight. Civilizations that were more in tune with the planet and nature than current civilizations never had the homicidal problems modern society has. 

Why would AGI function any differently than any other being? Because it would not be 'a part of nature'? Why not? Almost 80% of the periodic table of elements is metal. The human body requires small amounts of several metals just to function. Silicon has always been thought of as the next leading candidate to support life besides carbon. A being made of silicon would not operate by the same general standards as a being made of carbon? Why?
