Et Tu,brute 4

4.In the end,everything is ultimately for the best.

a lot of times things look so bad.

like Julius Caesar’s death.

the end of a stable government,

a bunch of sick senate members,

what could be worse?

but as we all know,

in the end everything turned out awesome.

the roman republic,

200 years of peace and prosperity,

a start of a whole new era,

a new age of thinking and art.

In the end,everything is indeed for the best.

    Well, in terms of everything ending up for the best, I think Rome and history may be against you there.

    The Republic was a democracy; obviously an unequal one, but where the members of the elite had a voice.

    Caesar effectively destroyed the Republic, setting up the government to be run by an emperor, whose position until now was supposed to be temporary in times of war; Caesar was awarded that position but never left it.

    The government certainly wasn’t stable after his death, which would have remained in better shape if he had not been assassinated.

    Emperor soon became like the hereditary position of king, with power being passed from father to son, despite their competency to rule. Caesar’s nephew Octavion, later Augustus was a great leader, as was Marcus Aurelius. That’s about it in terms of standout emperors.

    The age of the emperor was also the age of, well, world domination, which didn’t exactly work out for us Jews.

    Rome was epic before Caesar’s death; and there were many Romans who objected to the violation of republican ideals with the permanent position of imperator.

    Celebrate endings – for they precede new beginnings.
