Can a decision between killing a man and letting him live be as simple as knowing what is wrong and what is right? The difference between wrong and right should be very simple to understand for a grown man or any man, but was not for Brutus. As a man with no reason except being talked into killing Caesar, Brutus loses himself in a bubble of thoughts and a mind game that he could not solve. Brutus was tied between what he knew was right, but went with the wrong thing. Brutus was not a decision maker and was always lost in his mind, overthinking things.

Torn between becoming one of the conspirators or making his own decision, Brutus struggled with his thoughts. He was his own worst enemy because he, just like all of the other conspirators, had no reason as to why Caesar should have been killed by them. Brutus had too many minds thinking about what was best against his own. Had he listened to Cassius, he mostly likely would have gotten away with everything and would not have had to kill himself. Had he listened to himself and never Cassius, he would never had to kill himself. Brutus’s irrational decision making and his own mind were his biggest faults. These two things led t
