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
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).
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.
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. Cassius protests, “For my single self, / I had as lief not be as live to be / In awe of such a thing as I myself.
This form of betrayal can be seen in the relationship between Brutus and Caesar. A friend to Julius Caesar, Brutus loves the man greatly, but he loves Rome even more. Sensing that Caesar’s rising ambition will lead to tyranny over the free Roman people, Brutus feels forced to act. He goes against Caesar and works alongside the conspirators to overthrow Caesar. When planning to kill him, the conspirators gather around Caesar and he sees his trusted friend Brutus among them.
In the 1900's, racism was a big issue all over the world. As a result alot of people were treated poorly and it created injustice. In the novel To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, many characters such as Tom Robinson, Scout and Jem and Dolphus Raymond are highly exposed to the racism in their town. This decreases the quality of life for them. Tom Robinson is an innocent black man, however, due to the racial tension in Maycomb, he is found guilty for a crime he has not committed.
People complain that Brutus is just as bad as Caesar, yet Brutus does it for justice of the people. While others explain that the Roman empire will fall due to Brutus’s actions, others will say that he has a high respect of the citizens, and the citizens would know he did the deed for the better good. While some may bicker about Brutus making predictions about the future, he is simply trying to prevent tyranny to get ahold of Rome and the empire. Brutus is the perfect example of anyone in the world, who wants to do the better good for everyone. Should Brutus join the conspiracy against Caesar?
Jem, Scout, and Dill always stereotype Boo Radley without knowing him or knowing his real story. To explain this example I say people always stereotype people without knowing the person. When a person is walking down the street another person will be stereotyping him or her for religion or race. Another example is when they put Tom Robinson in jail for rapping a white women, but he was innocent. The court won't hear his side they think he is lying because Tom is black.
Brutus’s tragic flaw of being easily swayed made fiendish thoughts over preventing Caesar from being king housed inside of Brutus, thus turning Brutus, a quondam friend into a potential enemy of Caesar. Metaphors were also commonly used in the first act to prove the theme, especially when Marallus and Flavius were trying to disperse the crowd decorating for the return of Caesar as they quite efficiently made the Roman workers back down from celebrating the arrival of Caesar. Marallus, as he conjectures that others have forgotten about the death of Pompey, says “you blocks, you stones, you worse than senseless things”, where the commoners are compared to the stones (Marallus I i
Caesar is killed by conspirators who wanted freedom, liberty, and democracy. Though Caesar had ruled well, he wanted to be crowned and was ambitious. Caesar was killed because he was the one whose “abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power” (2.1.18, 19). But Brutus thought that “when he once attains the upmost round, he then unto the ladder turns his back” (2.1.24, 25). But Caesar loved the Romans according to what Antony spoke about Caesar 's death, “when that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept” (3.2.89).
Brutus was a great and close friend of Julius Caesar, but Cassius took advantage of Brutus because he was jealous of Julius. Brutus was a patriot and just wanted to do the right thing for Rome and make sure Julius was not going to become king. Brutus was a truthful man and wanted to know what the people thought about Julius. So Cassius tried to bribe Brutus with fake letters from the people, and decided he would team with the other senators and kill Julius Caesar for the good of Rome. For example, in his speech at Julius 's funeral he said "Not that I loved Caesar less, but I loved Rome more."
Either way he still ends up dead, which is horrible. Why is it bad kneel during the national anthem. Colin Kaepernick has his right to stand up for his people. But when a black man asks for help and gets killed, they have a bunch excuses, which is some bull shit to me. It’s so irritating, and it pisses me off in all types of ways.
For example, the line “Caesar was ambitious” (Wiggins DR-177 ) in Antony’s speech came out of the Brutus’s speech when he was calling Caesar ambitious. He knows what to do to prevent the bad future. Another example is Antony’s decision of killing Lepidus brother and telling Octavius that Lepidus is unworthy for the triumvir. He continued to control his fate by killing its rivals and securing it future. Sometimes the fate was with him; for example, Brutus’s decision of going to Philippi to battle Rome was a fate because Brutus and his army had a better position of
This makes Brutus a patriot because when Cassius suggests killing Antony Brutus says “It’ll look like we killed Caesar out of anger and Mark Antony out of envy. Let’s be sacrifices but not butchers, Caius. We’re all against what Caesar stands for, and there’s no blood in that.” Therefore he has good intentions. I also believe Brutus was a patriot because of the speech he made to the people about why he had murdered Caesar.
