He even says that he fears for the people if they choose Caesar as a king. Brutus has negatively affected the outlook of Rome and created more harm than good for the situation. Not only did it harm Rome, but it brought his own demise and hallucinations of Caesar’s ghost. Brutus’s speech to the plebeians after Caesar’s death, about his dilemma and his viewpoint towards Caesar, influenced the viewpoints of the plebeians and causes them to believe he is the best roman until Antony speaks to them. Brutus’s idealism led to his own death later on and brought him more misery than his idealism could
As a result of the agrarian laws, the two brothers were able to take control of the Empire, causing the Senate to fear their intentions and their potential. The Gracchi Brothers used their power and authority to take advantage of the vulnerable Roman government. They often let their selfish nature take control of the power they had, impacting Rome negatively.

Mussolini had told the nation he'd come to power through a violent takeover though, so he ordered his irregular troops to converge on Rome and had all his photographers waiting to show them waving sticks and guns to convince people that he won power by force. Mussolini wanted complete control. He still had to contend with the king and Parliament, which he threatened just one month after he came to power. Many of the powers to govern Mussolini wanted control over every aspect of the government, so when he began building his cabinet, he chose men he knew he could trust. Fifty opposition members of parliament were physically attacked and three were killed.
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.

Kill! / Slay!”(3.2, 206-207, 52). Owing to Antony’s speech, the people of Rome want to kill the conspirators and inflict disorder to Rome, thus going in a tumult. The people of Rome create the unruly environment by destroying Rome and making horrific actions, notably randomize killing, egoistically motivated by Antony’s false choice..

He stated that democracy was “nothing other than the systematic cultivation of human failure” (“Opposition to Parliamentary Democracy”). Fascism in Italy ascended before the Depression began.

During the 1930s, many militarists were willing to dismiss our world from
Rome was not to be ruled by one single leader, but as Caesar got more powerful he eventually became the dictator of Rome. Many people knew that this was not right, but did not speak out about it. Brutus’ ancestors were the reason Rome was turned into a republic, so Brutus cared dearly about his country. Brutus and Caesar were actually very close friends, and when others found out that Brutus was in on the assassination it convinced them to help, as well. The mob mentality in Julius Caesar was formed by Cassius when he got Brutus to side with him.
