In the ongoing debate of whether Brutus was a traitor or a patriot both sides present strong points. Although they both give good arguments I believe that Brutus was a patriot to Rome. Brutus was a patriot but others view him as a traitor for the deeds he had done. Brutus loved Rome over all other things in his life and that includes Caesar. The results of his actions were influenced by all the other things that took place at the time. On the argument of Brutus to decide whether he was a traitor or a patriot I believe Brutus to be the greatest patriot of his time. The other side of the argument is that he betrayed his home by killing Caesar. In this argument Brutus had to do what he thought best for Rome, the home he cared for. He could not leave the fate of a Country in the hands of a man like Caesar. Brutus knew that surely the downfall of Rome would come from the rule of such a bad ruler. For those who see him as a traitor is it not clear that he did it to protect and help his home.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
