Leader of the Free World?

I have heard the term leader of the free world for years, but never stopped to think about what “the free world” really meant.

According to the dictionary:

1) – The Free World is a Cold War–era term for the non-communist countries of the world. The free world included countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Canada, West Germany, Australia, and countries belonging to organizations such as the European Community and NATO. In addition, the “Free World” occasionally includes the Commonwealth realms, Japan, Israel, and India.

2) – the part of the world where democracy and capitalism or moderate socialism rather than totalitarian or Communist political and economic systems prevail

President Obama is referred to as the “Leader of the free world.” To be fair, all American presidents since the Cold War-era have been referred to as the leader of the free world.

The reason they were given that title was because of the freedoms that Americans enjoyed and the support that the American government gave to nations that were free or wanted to be free but may not have had the “military or economic muscle” to make it happen.

The Obama Administration said the “world was pretty tranquil” at a recent press conference. Obama himself said there has never been a better time to be alive, with all the world peace, tranquility and economic activity. It’s a great time to be alive. Hmmm, really? On what universe?
