honestly watch Hitler giving a speech. public speaking is more about how you say something rather than what you say and he was an incredible public speaker

Bring armed guards, hang banners by your side, speak German and make raised Roman salutes with your hand. Very persuasive man a few years ago was very successful with this technique.

Although I didn't expect to be saying this today...
This guy has got it pretty spot on. Hitler was one of the finest public speakers of the 20th century, if not of all time.
The whole Nazi regime is pretty interesting too, but that's another subject (:

Generalize facts and give people a scapegoat for their problems, convince them to rebel and conquer the school.

Learn how to spell 'speech', for what is ostensibly an english assignment :P

My favourite three things would be something people can smugly agree with, something shocking, or something the teacher won't understand, depending on what your strong suit is.

And yes, double plus on it being more about presentation than content.

You could do a persuasive speech on why violent video games don't affect young people in a negative way. I did that for my college speech class and got a 90% on it lol

Damn you guys beat me to Hitler...

Modern Public speakers ALL steal stuff from Hitler's speeches, such as hand movement, emphasis etc...

But for subject content it depends how brave you are. Either something easy, or something harder, or something stupid.

I would say try to argue that the modern wellfare state has halted darwinian evolution. That could be fun AND you could act like hitler

While not ourtrightly saying it, you should definitely imply world domination and genocide

Pick a subject that you a) know a lot about and b) that others can relate to. That's most of your work done.

Make sure you can relate what you're talking about to your audience - the key to public speech is to make each and every person in the audience feel a personal connection to what you're saying. You can make all the right points objectively, but what does this mean for them?

Intro & scene setting - bullet points of key facts and statements with a short bit of factual reasoning and importantly what this point will mean to your audience - short recap of what you've said in one or two sentences per piece. Then close.

A public speech like this is not meant to educate, it is meant to sway minds, it's a sales pitch. Make sure you're not reading out a spreadsheet of facts and figures or people get bored.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

Ok, I wrote it on world domination.

Think about it. Power. The power to do anything you want, to have others do your bidding. To have everything exactly the way you want it. Wouldn’t it be awesome to have that kind of power? I want you to help me achieve it. Join my cause, and together we will overthrow governments, conquer countries and achieve world domination. We will begin with America, then Canada and Mexico, and continue on until the entire world is within our grasp. We will control everything, and everyone. We will be almighty. We can unite the world under one nation. Pirates? Hang them. Terrorists? Nuke them. Gangs? Burn them. We will destroy anyone and anything that gets in our way. If there’s something we don’t like, we eliminate it. Imagine if Justin Beiber was never born. We will make that happen. There will be no more war, because if we are all under one ruler, what will there be to fight over? There will be no more crime, we will have police forces with bullet proof armor and the latest most advanced weaponry patrolling the streets. For extra security, we will search and clear every house and building annually. We will have more surveillance satellites and cameras in the cities. Everything will be safe. We can finally have world peace. There will be no more homeless, because everyone can be employed. All you have to do is join me. Join my cause, and all this can become a reality. I can promise you will be well fed and payed, I will even provide shelter for you. All I ask is for your cooperation. Join me, and we will achieve world domination.

Here:


"Denken Sie darüber nach. Macht. Die Macht, was Sie wollen, zu haben, andere tun Ihre Wünsche zu erfüllen. Um alles genau so, wie Sie es haben. Wäre es nicht genial, diese Art von Macht haben? Ich möchte, dass du mir helfen, es zu erreichen. Registriert meine Sache, und gemeinsam werden wir Regierungen zu stürzen, zu erobern Länder und die Weltherrschaft zu erreichen. Wir werden mit Amerika, dann Kanada und Mexiko beginnen, und weiter auf, bis die ganze Welt ist in greifbare Nähe gerückt. Wir werden alles kontrollieren, und jeden. Wir werden allmächtig sein. Wir können die Welt unter einer Nation zu vereinigen. Pirates? Hängen Sie sie. Terroristen? Nuke ihnen. Gangs? Verbrennt sie. Wir zerstören alles und jeden, der uns in den Weg bekommt. Wenn es etwas, was wir nicht mögen, beseitigen wir sie. Stellen Sie sich vor Justin Beiber nie geboren wurde. Wir werden um dies zuzulassen. Es wird keinen Krieg mehr geben, denn wenn wir alles unter einem Herrscher sind, was es sein wird, zu kämpfen vorbei? Es wird keine weiteren Verbrechen sein, werden wir die Polizei mit kugelsicheren Rüstungen und spätestens am weitesten fortgeschrittene Waffen patrouillieren in den Straßen haben. Für zusätzliche Sicherheit werden wir suchen und löschen jedes Haus und Gebäude jährlich. Wir werden mehr Überwachung Satelliten und Kameras in den Städten. Alles wird sicher sein. Wir können endlich Frieden in der Welt. Es wird nicht mehr obdachlos sein, denn jeder kann eingesetzt werden. Alles, was Sie tun müssen ist, sich mir anzuschließen. Registriert meine Sache, und all dies Wirklichkeit werden kann. Ich kann Ihnen versprechen, gut gefüttert werden und auch bezahlt, werde ich selbst bieten Schutz für Sie. Ich verlange nur für Ihre Mitarbeit. Komm zu mir, und wir werden die Weltherrschaft zu erlangen."

Much better.
