Topic: Meaning of decision making and problem solving
June 17, 2019 / By Collin Question:
Okay so I'm entering the optimist club's oratorical contest and the topic is "If I were leader of the free world, the first issue I would address would be…" Now I have a couple of questions.
1. By "free world" do they mean the US or like a theoretical "free word"?
2. Assuming the "free world" means the US, would the high rate of unemployment be a good topic? If not do you have any suggestions?
3. How would you really expand on it? Like what are possible ways I could categorize my body paragraphs? I was thinking of doing like 1 or 2 body paragraphs with one being like stop rich business owners from shipping our jobs over into foreign countries?
4. I was also wondering if there are some really good quotes(or any at all) on the topic that I could use? Or if I should use any at all?
Thank you very much for the help and advice in advance!
And for any aware of the rules, it says that contestants may receive advice in the preparations of the speech. :)

The term free world originated from the Cold War, when it was used to distinguish between democracies, specifically the United States and Western European countries, and the communist Soviet Union and its allies. As the United States led the war against communism, the President of the United States came to be known as the “leader of the free world.” But seriously – how pretentious is that title? The FREE WORLD? I’m pretty sure that’s inclusive of a whole bunch of other countries besides America. As it is a USA run competition, they probably mean that as President of the USA, what's your first action to best change the world.
Know that all significant change throughout history has occurred not because of nations, armies, governments and certainly not committees. They happened as a result of the courage and commitment of individuals. People like Joan of Ark, Albert Einstein, Clara Barton, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison and Rosa Parks. They might not have done it alone, but they were, without question, the change makers. Don't get caught up in the how of things. If you're clear on what you want to change and why you want to change it, the how will come. Many significant things have been left undone because someone let the problem solving interfere with the decision-making. The Genesis for change is awareness. We cannot change what we don't acknowledge. Most of the time, we aren't aware of what's wrong or what's not working. We don't see what could be. By becoming more aware, we begin the process of change.
"All meaningful and lasting change starts first in your imagination and then works its way out. Imagination is more important than knowledge."
“Yet we can maintain a free society only if we recognize that in a free society no one can win all the time. No one can have his own way all the time, and no one is right all the time.”
“While we are free to choose our actions, we are not free to choose the consequences of our actions.”
