The last words spoken by Julius Caesar were “Et tu Brute? Then fall, Caesar!” These words resonate the feelings of disbelief and betrayal Julius Caesar felt the moment his trusted friend and fellow roman, Brutus came out from the shadows of his fellow conspirators to assassinate him. Though Brutus was an honorable person his flaws caused both himself and Caesar to succumb to brutal deaths. The decision by Brutus to commit this act of mutiny upon Caesar was immoral. Due to it being ultimately pointless to save the republic and, it being made out of arrogance and gullibility from Brutus.
Many senators believe Caesar's power is growing out of hand. They begin to realize the threat it poses to themselves and question his right to hold power. Cassius’s prominent jealousy towards that power is evident and he has no problem expressing his opinion about it with others.
