I would not join killing Julius Caesar because hopefully I would notice that he was helping the poor, and that the poor really liked him. I would also not help kill him because hopefully I would notice that the senators and I were way outnumbered by the plebeians. The last reason I wouldn't help kill him is because I wouldn't feel right killing someone.
I agree because number 1 killing ANYONE is wrong and number 2 is the plebians really seemed to really care for Julius Caesar and finally number 3 is that Julius Caesar was helping the poor and caring for others.
I agree with Nicole, and you make a good point. Rome has conquered a lot of people and when they were conquered Rome didn't just make them rich again. Rome made them poor. The more people they conquered, the more plebeians. That gives the plebeians a chance to turn on the patricians.
I agree because if I were a patrician than I would think that 1. they outnumber us and 2. We have a whole ton of money we don't need so much more that they can't have some. So I think that was a good answer Luke.Good Job👏🏻👍🏻👌🏻
I agree with you, if I was a patrician I would want an new ruler but not kill him. Hopefully I would know that was wrong.
i would not he is awesome to me.i would like that poor are getting money.i would respect that guy if you ask me.
I Agree. Just because he wasn't helping the patriciansat the time, doesn't mean he was just let the patricians die.He was going to help them but he needed to help out the plebeians as well. I think that the patricians were just jealous.
I agree with Julien, I don't think he forgot the Patricians he just realized the Plebians needed more from him so he did that. But unfortunately the Patricians thought differently.
I would not kill julius ceasar because he helped the plebains and payed the soldiers and was really caring to the people. In my opinion the patritans didnt understand how caring julius ceasar was,in conclusion i would not kill julius ceasar.
I would not kill Julius Caesar since he was helping the poor and was a good military commander, so if I killed him, I would be hated by everyone except the rich. Though if Julius had not died, Octavian would not war with Marc Antony and Cleopatra and conquer Egypt. That would not happen since the 2nd triumvirate would not have formed because their priority was to hunt down and kill the killers of Julius, but I would still not kill him since I would be hunted and killed.
I agree, it wouldn't have happened but, maybe it would have changed for the better or for the worse. You never really know which one, you would have to take that change if you want to stop something that would alter history.
i agree with Emmanuel he was a great commander.i dont want to be hated if i did i would just give my self up and pay for more horrible crime.
I agree with you because he was helping the poor and I think your a good person by helping the poor. I also agree on not killing him because I would not want to be hunted and killed.
You can think of this two ways as a selfish senator or a good-hearted senator that believes everyone is equal. As a selfish senator I would probably kill Caeser. Why? Because I would be afraid of loosing my power and the money. But, as a good senator I would not kill Caeser. By helping plebians with all the money he had, and the god like status he had, would have just made a job as a senator easier. I would definitely appreciate (especially if I was a plebian) a man with that much power to take the time to care for those in need. Personally, I wouldn't kill Caeser because he was just a very nice man and no one deserves to be killed just because of selfish reasons.
I guess I'm just the crazy one here! I think the senators should have killed Caesar. He was destroying the republic. The govt. was set up a specific way and there were laws to protect it. The fear most Romans had at the time was one person gaining to much power and becoming a king like Tarquin. That is why there are 2 consuls and they each could have power for only 1 year. Caesar destroyed all of that. He became "Dictator for life." What if he was just helping out the poor to gain popularity and once he had the power he would have begun to abuse the power? Now murder is never right. But what if President Elect Trump declares himself President for life? How would you feel then?
I would kill Julius Caesar because if I was a Senator. I would be saying "why is he helping the poor by giving them and not helping the plubeians." I also would be thinking "he is ruining the Republic." So if they were gathering people to go kill Julius I would go join and come out to be a hero. But then the all got killed because they were not hero's they were villains.
I disagree, I see your point ,but you would get tortured or killed. Plus if you just told Caesar about the situation maybe would understand and help you out. You can also get a job instead of the plebians doing all the work because it's nice to help out because afterwards you feel good about yourself.
I disagree with killing him because he wanted to make Rome better. You would have to choose whether to risk to try to be a hero or play it safe and don´t get involved. Risking it resulted in execution. It is really just the mindset you have as a senate.
I would not kill Julius Caesar because I know I would get punished for killing him. I also would know that Julius Caesar helped out the plebians so they cared about him and appreciated him and so they would be angry at the rich. Plus not killing Caesar makes me a good person and if I stood up for him and not let the rest kill him I would become maybe almost as popular as Caesar. If the rich told Caesar that they felt like they were not getting enough money maybe Caesar would have come around and understands them. I wouldn't kill Caesar ever if life depended on it.
I agree with Yasmin, I would not kill Caesar because he was being a good person and helping out the poor. Even if it did anger the rich they most likely could have talked to him and maybe he would have understood them. I would never kill someone because I know it is against the law and I could suffer extreme consequences later down the road.
I would not kill Julius Caesar because if I were to know the consequences down the road, I would realize I´d be killed. Also because he tried to better Rome as a whole. The patricians were already rich and powerful. He just wanted to balance the power between the plebeians and patricians. So no, I would not kill Julius Caesar
I agree Ethan because if the senators knew they were going to be tortured and killed, they would not kill Julius Caesar. I also agree with the point about the plebeians and patricians since plebeians had very little power, and Julius Caesar helped them.
I would not kill Julius Ceasar because if all the people like him and I kill him then some of those people will not like me. He also helped the poor which is good because they didn´t get much. He is a good general so I would not want to kill someone who helps us with our army and is good at it.
I agree I wouldn't kill Julius Ceasar. I wouldn't kill him because everyone likes him. I also wouldn't kill him because the community would try to executed.Also i have no reason to hate him.
As a senator I would be torn with the decision about killing Julius Caesar. I would not want to kill him because he was making all of the plebeians happy by helping the poor but that made the rich mad. He also was an outstanding military general which would make Rome even stronger. If I did not kill him all of the patricians would be mad because someone he ruled was someone he actually cared about the poor. On the other hand, if I did kill him I would make all of the plebeians mad and then I could face the consequence of getting killed. Either way with my decision I would not want to make anyone mad.
Luke I do agree that it is a hard decision. Though I think you would want to not kill Julius Caesar, because of the plebeians. If you killed him they would get angry and you would probably have to run from getting killed like the other senators. If you do not kill him though, you would have the plebeians go with you instead of against you. You would be seen as a good senator for not killing Julius Caesar.
I would not want to join stabbing Julius Caesar. Stabbing a man you have worked with is first of all wrong. Also I would not want to get hunt down by the people of the empire I once lived in. I would also not want to stab Julius Caesar, because if I did not stab Caesar I could be thanked for not stabbing him and may hold a high status in the senate. Also if I had tried to even try to stop them from stabbing Caesar and he had lived a probably would have gotten a huge reward for saving his life. Stabbing Caesar would have caused me to risk my position in the senate and having to live with that burden. No joining is more logical and safer then trying to stab Julius Caesar.
If I had the choice I would not stab Julius Caesar. I wouldn't stab him because even if he wasn't thinking of the Patricians, he was helping out the poor Plebians which needed more from him. He also deserved the right for dictator for like, Julius was great in the military and also defeated one of Rome's most feared enemies. But, then again sincemost of the other Senators disliked him, I think they would disagree and still end up stabbing him.
