Even though Brutus's popularity with the people adds value to the conspiracy, it also hurts it, as people would be watching Brutus. The people of Rome know Brutus and could possibly detect if he is acting strangely and tip off Caesar. If Brutus was unable to keep the plan hidden and proceed as normal in public, their intentions could be realized and Caesar would be tipped off. Being such good friends with Caesar could also present a problem as Brutus could have second thoughts about turning against his friend. In act one, scene two, Brutus says, " I love him well."
Marc Antony, tells the crowd that Caesar was not ambitious even though Brutus and the conspirators thought he was. The Romans started to wonder if Brutus was actually the one who was in control because he received more power once Caesar was dead. To compare today’s ambitious politicians to the ambitious political leaders in Julius Caesar, it is noted that both groups of people wanted more power and more authority. Brutus was already of high power in the city of Rome, but was manipulated by Cassius who wanted even more power, showing that Cassius was the ambitious one behind the murder of Caesar. An opposing argument could be that leaders are not ambitious for power, rather they are just determined to help better their country.
The citizens do not know if the politician that wins the race will use the power they received to the best interest of the nation or country. Shakespeare deals with political power in his play by showing that just like in politics today there is a leader, or the president, who associates themselves with the conspirators, or congress, to make the laws of the nation, or country. Also, that a party that they are associated with can also cause the leader, or president, to lose their power and even their life, because their associate want their power. Grassley argued that "no one -- not even the President -- is above the law," and asked Gorsuch if it would be problematic for him to decide against the President. "That's a softball, Mr. Chairman," Gorsuch responded.
However he relented under inevitable circumstances which lead him into a life of organized crime for the sake of his family 's prosperity and safety. Most often, his desires indirectly affects the peace and harmony of his family life. The Themes The film delves into various sociological themes of honor and obligation, power, corruption, violence, justice and crime in America. - Euphemisms : “It’s business, not personal” This quotation seems to be an organizational-wide mantra like an official slogan to organized crime. At all, the mafiosi refers themselves as businessman to conceal their hideous and violent acts from the general people around them.
Jugurtha decided he was going to bribe Rome not to intervene in his situation. The book states that Jugurtha, “sent legates to Rome with a quantity of gold and silver” (Sallust, 2007. pg 59). Along with the bribery, “Jugurtha acquired access to the favour and goodwill of the nobility” (Sallust, 2007. Pg 59). Not only did Rome accept the bribe, but they also allowed and supported the evil doings of
The relationship between them and political issues is that factors can be the topic of a political issue, but they cannot be the sole cause of conflict because conflict only arises if the different viewpoints of the factor choose to enter into rivalry, thus it becomes a political issue because as it is said in the definition: it is a quarrel between governments. Not many issues that lead to the war had much to do with any economy, the issues that had nothing to do with it far surpass the ones that do. What it boiled down to was a dispute between political systems. Nothing played a more vital role that that of the colonists’ yearn for a different political system of government, thus proving that political issues, as opposed to economic factors, caused the American
A similarity in each book is, both families come from money. Another similarity is in the story of Julius Caesar, the conspirators believed that Julius just wanted the power, and did not care about the good of Rome. Likewise, in The Taming of the Shrew Petruchio wanted power over Katherine, he wanted her to do what he wanted just as he wanted. Additionally, they each had big egos. In the story of Julius Caesar, although in the beginning he did not have a large ego, as Julius kept winning battles his ego became a problem.
Some people argue that Julius Caesar was the greatest military general and politician of all time; however, I disagree. In my opinion, Caesar was a forceful dictator who only cared about his own wealth and power, punished innocent citizens, and was greedy for supporters. Julius Caesar just wanted himself to be satisfied, even if it was at the expense of the Roman republic. He also punished all of the innocent citizens that just wanted to sustain the old laws and traditions of the Roman republic. Another reason he is not an astonishing leader is that he increased the number of senators so that more people would support him.
Senator Mitch McConnell states that the electoral voting system is, “Designed to promote good government and legislation that forwards the common good of a large and diverse nation.” He believes that just because the electoral voting system does not please many people and sometimes may not elect the president that everyone thinks should be the president does not make the system have enough flaws to just cast it out. It exists for many reasons, but mainly for choose the right person for the job. It is the system that keeps the government and its people together like a “linchpin,” as he states. If it were to be removed, the nation could collapse. The electoral college voting system is that exists today to keep the nation going, without having to battle the wrong decisions made by uneducated people.
Athens governments get a survey from its citizen and they write the person’s name of who they think has the most power. After that, it’s counted and the person gets kicked out of their country. The Roman Empire and the Athens were very different. Each empire treated citizenship and influences differently, but Rome had the better system of citizenship. People were treated fairly, gender and social classes weren’t limited, and people who had power weren’t exiled.
