Does Brutus really believe everyone is as honorable as he is just because they're all Romans? How does he view Cassius's motives, and why then should he distrust Caesar?
| Quote #8
By suggesting that they also murder Antony, Cassius removes the veil of honor from the plan. This isn't simply about protecting Rome from tyranny; it's making practical moves to protect them from further "annoyances" in whatever it is they plan after the murder.
| Quote #9
Brutus still believes that he retains his honor, even after the whole "murdering our leader" incident. It's interesting that he relies on his honor to convince the people the murder was justified, when it's likely that the murder is the very thing that compromised his honor. That Brutus doesn't see this is probably a good indicator that he actually did have honorable intentions: he intended no wrong, and thus can't see how anyone would think so.
