Is it justified to kill someone because they have gained too much power and are going to use it for the worse? Brutus has a very bad circumstance on his hands, he can kill Caesar and possibly be executed for his actions or he can let Caesar become king and watch Rome fall. There are many reasons why Brutus should and should not join the conspiracy. Brutus says, “I know no personal reason to spurn at him But for the general.” (II,i,11). Lucius Junius Brutus one of Brutus’ ancestor that turned Rome into a republic.
Two big conspirators of his death were Brutus and Cassius. Firstly Brutus one of the conspirators was a very big part in the death of Julius. If Brutus did not convince Caesar to go to the senate that day as in document C he would not have gone. But Brutus who was said to be Caesar 's friend in Doc C wanted him to stop so Brutus himself could gain power. Cassius the other big conspirator openly expressed his hatred.
After agonizing about the decision for a while, he finally received sufficient evidence that Caesar had become a threat to the Roman Republic that needed to be eliminated. Brutus states, “It must be by his death: and, for my part, I know no personal cause to spurn at him, but for the general. He would be crowned..”. He recognized that the general populace wanted Caesar to be their king- they even offered Caesar the crown three times in one day. Each time Caesar seemed to have a harder and harder time refusing the crown.
When Sulla became the dictator over Rome, he ordered his soldiers to persecute and kill many members of the plebeian class, among this group was Julius Caesar. Several of Sulla’s men were friends with Caesar and interceded for his life, Sulla honoured the request of these men and rather than killing Caesar, sent orders for him to renounce his marriage. Caesar refused to repudiate his wife Cornelia, and knowing there would be consequences of disobeying Sulla’s orders, Caesar fled from Rome. When Sulla heard that Caesar refused to obey his command, he confiscated Caesar’s titles and offices, seized Cornelia’s fortune and Caesar 's estate, and placed his name on a list of public
Caesar was dutifully wronged by conspirators. Caesar’s death was not beneficial for Rome but for the conspirators in taking power into their own hands.They themselves claimed to be honorable men. Marcus Brutus, Caius Cassius, Servilius Casca, Lucius Cornelius Cinna, Decius Brutus, Caius Ligarius, Metallius Cimber, and Gaius Trebonius took matters into their own hands by stabbing Caesar 23 times, but they themselves claim to be honorable men. What have they done for Rome, but kill it’s greatest leader? Did you all not cheer for him after he defeated Pompey?
The conspirators were successful in killing Caesar for the “Good of Rome”. In the play A Tragedy of Julius Caesar a conspiracy is formed to kill Caesar because many think he is getting too ambitious. In the conspiracy people were turning against other people; sides were being taken. Although Antony stays loyal to Caesar, he causes a great deal of damage to the city of Rome due to the things he decided to say to the common people. Many lives were taken, not just Caesar’s, but many of the conspirators lives as well.
He exemplified the ways of both a hero and a villain. However, it is my opinion that he is a villain. I believe this because he could be an extremely violent leader and because he never fully reigned over one of the places he conquered/ruled. He is a villain because he murdered thousands of people and soldiers from different nations. Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them.
Brutus' decision to stab Caesar in the back wasn't an easy one. He has to choose between his loyalty to the Roman Republic and his loyalty to his friend. Seems like he could be heading toward tyrant status. Brutus says he killed Caesar because he loved Rome more than he loved Caesar. Based on examples in The Tragedy of Julius
The conspirators took matters into their own hands by killing Caesar so his powers decreased. The conspiracy contained many important individuals including Marcus Brutus and Cassius Longinus. Cassius got Brutus’s assistance by persuading him to join. At the end of William Shakespeare 's play “The Tragedy of Julius Caesar” Caesar was killed by the conspirators at the Senate and later on some of the conspirators died. Although Caesar’s death is very controversial, this event was going to be necessary for the future.
More powerful than a one man should become and that made him very dangerous all of Rome would depend on what decisions Caesar made. He could have changed for the better but the possibility of him turning into a tyrant outweighed that possibility and forced our hands into action. I know all too well the other conspirators had other motives to kill Caesar. I knew this from the beginning they were most likely getting revenge for Pompey's murder. Though they did bring up a good point and it was enough to convince me to betray Caesar a man whom I loved dearly.
Around 800,000 to one million individuals were killed at Treblinka Death Camp from July 23, 1942 to October 19, 1943 in Eastern Poland; 90 precent of all detainees was killed inside of two hours of entry. The bodies were then taken by Sonderkommandos to the open cremation pit on a peak. The pit had iron rails bound in layers inside of it like grillwork, on which the bodies were burned. Jews were intermittently forced to enter the pit and filter through the fiery remains for any bones that should have been be ground. On August 2, 1943, the prisoners fought back.
Julius Caesar was a tyrant after he defeated Pompey, but then some of his closest friends, including Brutus, Cassius, Casca, and Cinna, brutally murdered him. The only one there who had real motive was none other than Cassius. He was the one who convinced Brutus to join the conspiracy, he came up with the whole plan on how to kill Caesar, and he just generally didn’t like how Caesar was godlike in the Roman’s eyes. Cassius knew that for the mutiny to work, they needed Brutus. Brutus had a lot of influence among the Romans because he was Caesar’s right hand man.
