The Middle Ages were better

Former Iranian President Mohammed Khatami speaking in Chicago,
On Saturday afternoon, Khatami took a campaign line from former President Ronald Reagan.

Asking whether the world was better off than it was in the 400 years before the Renaissance, Khatami answered by saying there is 'too much material and materialism.'

The result, Khatami said, is a world of 'insecurity.'

"there is 'too much material and materialism.'"

That's hysterical. Khatami is known for his expensive (British) hand tailored robes. LOL
