There is an old adage that states, “A great man can save a dozen lives; a great leader can save a million lives.” Indeed, leaders are rare and necessary. One could argue that it is better to have a bad leader than to not have a leader at all; anarchy would ensue otherwise.
With this in mind, which world leader(s) past and present do you most admire? Explain why.

This begs the following question:
Which country has the best national flag, asthetically and symbolically? Explain why.
