I believe that Brutus is a patriot
I believe that Brutus is a patriot. Brutus kills Caesar because Cassius convinced him that Caesar would destroy Rome and the people. He believed that he was doing the right thing in order to save Rome and its people. At the Battle of Philippi, Brutus kills himself because he was losing and he believes that he has done all he can for Rome.
After Caesar was killed, Brutus gave a speech at his funeral. After hearing his speech, I would agree that Brutus is a betrayer. Brutus’ speech was short and all about him and Caesar. Brutus also states that the people should thank him for killing Caesar and that all the honor should go to himself because he saved Rome from the doom that he believes Caesar would cause.
