Caesar started off as a business man, he used to sell a dish called hoecakes from the back of his wagon. (Wilson 1.3). His business was later shut down by police because he needed a licenses. Once he got his hoecake business back up again, he started to receive criticism from his customers about his food portions and prices. Caesar states, “Niggers say my bowls was too small. I got bigger bowls. Say I didn’t put enough pork in the beans. I put in more pork. I got me some chickens. I charged extra for the big ones and the people got mad.” (Wilson 1.3). Caesar was rather insecure because he decided he no longer wants to sell food. Instead, he started to give people places to sleep. Caesar felt people were not satisfied with him. Perhaps this inner feeling of disappointment lead Caesar to desire to have force and power over people. Caesar also faced many unsympathetic experiences which triggers his abusive behavior. He deals with a family who he cares for a lot more than they do for him. In scene three Caesar tells his sister, “I ain’t got but one sister and I try to do right by her and you push me away. Family is important. I know the value of family.” (Wilson 1.3). Caesar’s mother was insensitive, he claims he would try and turn his sister Black Mary against him. Caesar represents those police who have been through severe hardships within society and chose to find a way of power
Philosophical thinker John Locke spoke on the rights of revolution, and how every man was given the birth-right of overthrowing restricting power. In multiple cases, the only means of challenging the vigors is death and brute force as demonstrated with Brutus in the tragedy Julius Caesar. These acts of violence demonstrate the will of the people -- the distance they are willing to go for their beliefs. When culminating their numbers, this will inevitably lead to the downfall of a once great leader. This is called the epitaph of a tyrant, the death of a controlling iron first -- a synonym for the dawn of a new day.
Brutus describes Caesar with this quote: “But he was ambitious” (III, ii, 21). Also, Caesar accepts bribes in another quote by Brutus “But for supporting robbers, shall we now contaminate our fingers with base bribes, and sell the mighty space of our large honors for so much trash as may be graspéd thus” (IV, iii, 23-26). Caesar also thinks of himself as “immortal” (I, ii, 60), described here by Cassius, even if sarcastically. One that is power-hungry, short-tempered (even if by disease), thinks he is indomitable, and ambitious does not qualify for a good leader in a republic.
