Brutus and Caesar were the closest of friends; if someone murders their friends,
means they should be harshly punished. Brutus murdered Caesar, but it was for the good of
Rome. Cassius tricked him into believing that the death of Caesar would benefit Rome, and he
those belief. Although Brutus killed his closest friend, Caesar. It is technically not a
betrayal since Brutus only made his scheme after Cassius tricked him. Cassius is a traitor for his
defamation while Brutus should be a Patriot as he only acted for the good of the people.
Brutus conspired against Caesar; therefore, he could be considered a betrayer. He stabbed
Caesar then Caesar says his famous last words. “Et tu, Brute”. However, Brutus killed Caesar
because he believed it would be the best thing for Rome. He justified all his actions by saying it
was “for the good of Rome”. Brutus only betrayed his relations with Caesar, he didn’t betray his
relations with the state. Although he lied to the citizens of Rome about the fact that he did not
participate in the murder of Caesar, Brutus knew of the dangers involved with revealing his
participation. Brutus asks all the citizens to believe in him and they do. The whole plot was
created by Cassius, he tricked Brutus and Brutus justified himself because he truly believed that
he did everything for the citizens of Rome.
Brutus says “not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more.” Brutus sacrificed
his close relationships with Caesar for the thousands of citizens of Rome. He could’ve gained
anything he wanted when Caesar was king, but he denied all his future possessions.
