If I was a senate and I had the choice to kill Caesar, I would have to think long and hard over my decision. First of all, the people may be mad at me if I do. Second of all, with him as a dictator, he may become too greedy with power. So my decision would be to spare him, but capture him. One I had captured him I would persuade him to work with another person that was elected. That way there could be two consuls and Caesar would still be popular. If this solution went wrong, then yes I would kill him.
Do you really think you should kill him? have you considered your options.
I totally agree with you Cooper. If Caesar might of rose in too much power and make the roman civilization crash at a very early stage of time.
I don't really know. I want to kill him because i would be mad,but at the same time i think killing him would go to far.I mean they did have a right to be mad but killing is too much.They should of just tried to capture him.
I highly agree with you Deniyah. The only thing is what if his guards and people killed you for capturing him?! Otherwise I think your decision may turn out to prove successful.
I think killing Julius Caesar would be a good idea because, if he obtained too much power, he could have done many things to his liking....there might even be bad things that satisfie him. But, if he just wanted to do some good for the people, then they should spare his life.
I agree with deniyah because killiing caesar would be dum because every body loved him. also they could have just cauptred him.
I agree with Deniyah, but if you could try to talk him into stepping down from the throne. This though could go two ways. One way is that he could say "no way" and have them executed. The other way could be he steps down from the throne and they could maybe convince him to become a general once again and this would be a great asset to the Roman Empire as a whole not just the senate.
If I was thinking in the minds of the senators I probably would but if I had the mind I have now I definitely wouldn't because first off I know i would get hunted down and killed and second Julius Caesar really was a great emperor third if I didn't like him maybe try to talk to him and if he doesn't listen I might have just captured him like everyone else said.
I see your point of not killing him. But if you were living at that time you would see him going crazy and the first thought would probably be to kill him so he doesn't take over. As a senators point of view at least.
I wouldn't, because killing is wrong. If I was a senator, I would be mad, but not mad enough to kill him. Julius Caesar was a good person. He helped out the plebeians by giving them food and land. If I was a senator, I probably would have asked why he didn't come for advice, but I wouldn't kill him for it. When he declared himself dictator, instead of killing him I would have asked why. Instead of action, I would have used my words. If I was a senator, I would not kill Julius Caesar.
First of all, back then killing was not very so rare, so I wouldn't say killing is wrong. Second, what if he killed you for opposing him with your words, or put you in jail. I do see your point about how you wouldn't be mad enough to kill him, I agree. Really you would need a backup option.
I agree with you Autumn because you are right about how killing is wrong. If i were also a senator I would also not would be to mad to kill him to.
I agree with you Denyiah because, if he was doing bad things to people just because he has a lot of power, he should not be killed, he should be captured and maybe he can make a deal with the senators.
If I had a choice rather to kill him or to not to kill him, I would not kill him because the public liked Cesar, and if the senators kill him the public would turn on them.
If I had the choice to kill Caesar I would. If Caesar gained even more power then he may become to greedy. Leading to the roman civilization being chaotic.
I wouldn't of killed him because I don't think he was going to go crazy. Yes he was starting to let power go a little to his head but I don't think he was going crazy. I think he would of kept helping the plebeians and lowering the patricians power to make it fair. All even. And if he went crazy their would be someone that could catch him off guard to kill him.
I totally agree with you Logan. I don't think he was going crazy either. I agree that he would have kept helping the plebeians to make things fair. I think your choice is right.
I agree with you Logan, but first off I don't really think he was letting power get to him. Julius Caesar was helping the Plebeians rather than the patricians because they already had a lot. He wasn't lowering the patricians power, if anything he was helping the plebeians get better. There would be no more conflict between them and everyone would be equal.
If i had the choice of killing cesar i would not because, he made the roman army better and stronger. also he made the plebians and the patricans equalto one another. another reson why is that everbody loved him.
I agree with Audrey because she gave good word choice in her response, Also she made it short and sweat I think she could have added a little more detail to your response but over all I really liked it.
From a senator's point of view I can see why they did kill Caesar, But the senator's need to take in that in the past that they have been controlling the not as rich people in a bad way. I think it was a bad move for them because the not as rich people were mostly the army so they should have not messed with them, But once the not as rich people got their hands on the senator's they murdered each and every one of the senator's to get revenge. Winch I think was a good idea so now they did not have anyone controlling them. That is why I would never kill Caesar.
I agree with you Hannah because I do see the senator's point of view but I thnk they were being selfish. I do think it was a mistake to mess with the plebians, because they were a large percentage of the roman population.
If i had a chose to kill ceasar i would not because he made roaman people stronger.Everybody liked him very much.He made everybody fell equal.
If I was a senator I would not have killed Julius Caesar. Julius was makeing an impact in many peoples lives. The senators didn't like that he was becoming so popular, but it was because he was considerate and helped out the poor. The senators also did not think about the consequences they would face after they killed Julius Caesar.
I agree with you Mia! Julius made a huge impact in people's lives. He helped the poor. Tried to protect. They seemed to be more jealous he came in and conquered.
No, I would not kill Julius Caesar as there would be no valid reason to do so. Julius Caesar was a successful ruler. He had the country at peace and prosperity. Julius established a police force to protect. He made several laws that redistributed land and jobs from the nobles. Julius came in as a nobody and did what a good ruler should do.
If I had the choice as senator to kill Julius Caesar I would not. Julius Caesar was a great leader and there would have been a huge out rage between the people. I would most likely be dead within hours if I did kill Julius Caesar.
I agree with you Grace because all the people were mad about the senators killing Ceasar ,+ the part about being dead.
I agree with grace but what if you didn't know you would be killed. If you didn't would you? That's what I wonder.
I would not kill Ceaser because of the repercussions that would follow after you killed. There were so many people who like Ceaser. They also could have tried to talk to him.
If I were there with me I wouldn't kill him. If I were there and I was a patrician my entire life I might have. It depends on what body I was in.
WOW I think this is one of the only classes that actually thought killing Caesar wasn't a totally awful decision. Coop way to start it off! 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?
