This week we are asking you to use your imagination and your knowledge of people. Let’s suppose an alien with a sense of humour picks you up one night and drops you off as the leader of a country like Sierra Leone (one of the most corrupt in the world) or North Korea or Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia. What would you do? What would be needed to get a country like that back on the world stage? Is democracy essential? What compromises would you accept?
How fast can a country change? It took East Germany only 10 years but some countries never seem to improve. Are they beyond hope?
Do you feel sure you would succeed in saving your country? Or do you think your country might corrupt you?
