For that matter -- what is "the human condition"?  Is there only
*one* "human condition"?

To me, the very phrase, "the human condition", reeks of projecting
your own values and morals onto others.  It's like "the meaning of
life" -- there are lots of different people who will tell you that
life means a lot of different things.  By the same token, I can
imagine quite a number of "human conditions".
