The Suicide of Julius Caesar

Rate this Entry
After doing quite a lot of reading, I've come to the conclusion that the assassination of Julius Caesar may have, in fact, been a strategic suicide on Caesar's part, a reversal of the plot of Cassius Longinus and Junius Brutus. I believe that Caesar intended this suicide after some contemplation as a pragmatic method of creating an empire or ensuring lasting political power in Rome.

I'll write up a full pseudo-essay later on, possibly tomorrow.

    Silly Fishie, I'm not Caesar. Not Julius, anyhow. Augustus was the better ruler.

    Eh? Silly Leo, I'm basing this only on historical fact! This is not random speculation, not at all.
