This is directed towards some of the other assassins because he knew many of them had poor intentions. Cassius was part of the assassins only because he was jealous and feared that if Caesar became king he would be killed. Almost all the assassins killed Caesar because they did not like him. Brutus loved Caesar, but he loved Rome and its people
Caesar was beginning to show signs that he saw himself above roman jurisdiction which was contradicting Republic values. The senate also did not like the fact that Julius Caesar was extremely disrespectful towards them on multiple accounts which showed his arrogance. Suetonius states, “Two tribunes of the people ordered the fillet to be removed at once from his statue and the offender imprisoned. But Caesar reprimanded and summarily degraded them both.” The reason why Julius Caesar was eventually assassinated was because he was too obvious about his motives. Caesar had no problem acting like a tyrant in front of the senate even though they were the ones that gave him his titles and honors.
The two brothers recognized their opportunity to expose the weaknesses of the Roman Republic and the Senate. This resulted in the Senate’s unfriendly reaction to the Gracchi, which influenced the brothers to make changes to Roman politics. The brothers attempted to change Roman politics, as a result of the reaction the Senate gave them. The affect of these changes was proven after the death of the Gracchi brothers. Lastly, the Gracchus brothers changed Roman history positively at times and negatively at times, resulting in short and long-term damage to Rome.
By definition, to be "just" one must possess the ability to fix a problem or argument with another. His laws were discriminatory in that they were often seen as cruel punishments for the lower-class society. One of the reasons why he was so hash was his lack of desire to deal with such little problems as Rule 195, "If a son strikes his father, his hands shall be cut off." Many believed there were better ways to solve these problems than physical punishments. This may be seen as the simple way out of court trials and therefore made King Hummurabi 's life a little easier.
Out of all the warnings he has received, the ones he truly felt were true were Calpurnia’s dream and the discovery of the beast without a heart. Another reason why caesar didn’t take the warnings seriously, although everyone loyal to him did is his arrogance. Caesar was very arrogant and this is shown through the way he speaks, which is always in the third person. Caesar’s ignorance and Caesar’s arrogance were the leading causes of his demise. Had he come to his senses earlier, and not let his arrogance get in the way of his safety, Caesar may have lived longer than he
There is suffering in the world, because life is unfair and always has been. Good people are harmed by evil people, who do not care about the wellbeing of others. Life for some people is about honoring family and tradition for others it is about gaining power over others. Death is a natural occurrence and some people are able to accept this, some cannot accept the fact that life is not eternal and seek ways to artificially elongate their lives even if it means harming or killing others in the process. All people are different and while some are righteous and will stand by their beliefs even if it means death they will, others are cowards driven by greed and power and will destroy anything and everything for it.
Despite Creon’s past successful leadership, it often appeared as though Creon’s common choice of decisions and following threats led to his loss as his actions caused his people enough fear to want to either escape his rule. Such examples are seen with the guard who says “you won’t see me coming here again.”(Sophocles, 286) which clearly showed his loss of loyalty to Creon after he and the other guards had been threatened under false accusations, or Antigone whose main purpose in the story was to cause to incite conflict by defying Creon’s laws. The worst example of his ignorance to other’s opinions was when Creon’s own son Haemon one of the few people who would be in his favor, enraged Creon into a blind fury simply by stating that he disagreed with his choice in “No, not when I see you making a mistake and being unjust” (Sophocles,847/848). Unfortunately for all involved, no matter their intentions or actions, it always seems as though Creon’s judgements were precisely incorrect and poorly
He is a great observer, and he looks quite through the deeds of men” (1.2.199-204) Caesar doesn’t trust Cassius very much because he sees him as a danger to people. In fact, he said that Cassius should be feared by nearly everyone, but doesn’t fear him himself. In conclusion, Caesar doesn’t like Cassius because he can’t trust him as being as loyal as the people he surrounds himself with. However, Caesar likes Brutus because they are close friends. When Cassius asked Brutus if he didn’t want Caesar to be king, Brutus replied, “I would not Cassius.
He is able to be a light for the people around him, while not actually being a hero because he was never given the satisfaction of being known for his crime. Meanwhile, everything Brutus does was for the empire and he wouldn't be noble or honorable if he didn't do those things for the people of the Roman
Hades was not well liked by the people of Greece, so much so that he did not get his own stories. He is most well known from the story of how Persephone, his wife, was kidnapped. A main reason for him being disliked is that he was seen as being extremely bitter at the fact that he was forced to rule the underworld. This bitterness was conveyed explicitly in how he ruled, as he was viewed as being cruel, ruthless, and violent (Cotterell 161). However, as Cotterell explains, the underworld was not only a place of punishment.
