Yes, Brutus is right
to join the conspiracy against Caesar. Brutus should join the conspiracy
against Caesar because Caesar can be dangerous with his power, and shows signs
of possibly leading Rome back into a dictatorship. Brutus joining the
conspiracy could prevent this. Caesar gives hints that he wants to become king
and turn Rome’s republic into a dictatorship when he shows his arrogance and
hunger of power. Caesar shows tremendous pride and makes it obvious that he
wants the crown, he wants the power. The other characters viewpoint of Caesar
also proves that Caesar is the type of person to want this power. Other
characters can be seen as frightened of Caesar, or extremely loyal to him. The
idea that other characters are afraid of Caesar having such power can be seen
when Cassius and the senate wants Brutus to join the conspiracy. This is proven
when Cassius convinces Brutus to join the conspiracy by saying, “No Caesar hath
it not; but you and I, /And honest Casca, we have the falling sickness” (Act 1,
scene 3). Cassius is talking about when Casca said he saw Caesar sick and
Cassius is saying that they are going to be the ones sick if Caesar comes to
power. Cassius and the senate discuss the idea for Brutus to join the conspiracy
so Caesar cannot hold so much power because it could put Rome in danger, and
Brutus has the power to stop this from possibly happening. If Brutus could stop
all of this from happening, it would be for his own benefit. Also, Brutus is
right to join the conspiracy because it shows that he is noble and brave to
kill his own friend, showing the people of Rome that he will do anything he can
for the better of Rome, as well as possibly making him the most respected
politician in Rome. This will also increase his likeliness among the citizens
of Rome. If Brutus assassinates Caesar, the people will likely believe it was
for a good reason, due to Brutus’s likeliness and his high rank. This could
possibly further develop Brutus into a more powerful politician in Rome. This
is proven in the play when Brutus’s high rank in society is shown when Cassius
and the rest of the conspiracy go to Brutus to help assassinate Caesar because
of his rank. If it were Brutus, there would not be an outrage of the
assentation because Marcus Brutus is well liked enough to make it seem like it
was a good thing, once again further developing his likeliness, and the people
will look at him as a noble and brave politician. Brutus joining the conspiracy
could also make him the most respected politician in Rome because he was able
to do something so hard, since Caesar was his friend, making Brutus look like
noble and brave. Finally, Brutus is right to join the conspiracy because Caesar
will likely take advantage of the romans and their rights, and he will take
advantage of Brutus himself. Caesar often takes advantage of people with the
rank he has now and if Caesar moves up into an even higher rank it will most
likely get worse with the more power he has. Caesar will likely take advantage
of friends and family, as well as the roman people due to his tremendous power
based on his character so far in the play. Brutus realizes this and agrees to
join the conspiracy when he says, “It must be by his death: and for my part/I
know no personal cause to spurn at him,/But for the general good. He would be
crown’d:/How that might change his nature,/And therefore think of him as a
serpant’s egg/Which hatch’d, would, as his kind, grow mischievous,/And kill him
in the shell”(Act 2, scene 1). Brutus is saying they need to kill Caesar before
he gets too much power, proving that they are scared Caesar will take advantage
of them and the roman citizens. In conclusion, Brutus is right to join the
conspiracy because Caesar can be a dangerous monarch that is no good for the
roman republic, Brutus will be looked at as noble and brave, and Caesar can
take advantage of Brutus and the roman citizens if he gets into power.
