Why doesnt mě go in second position?

It is not used as a clitic, but as the most stressed word of the sentence. But the world changed ME.

In this example it can also go to the second position. You will stress a different word then.

Accusative has the lowes priority when it is a clitic (it is placed after things like -li, jsem, se, mi) and does not have to be a clitic at all.

Well it took me about 15 minutes to figure out what you are saying. I had to look up what a “clitic” was. I now completely understand this. Thanks.

Lepší slovosled by byl "Ale svět mě změnil"

To není lepší slovosled, to je úplně jiná věta.
