Do You Believe It Is More Important To Have Power Or Respect In Today's World?

816 words - 3 pages

I believe that it is more important to have respect then power because a leader without any respect will not have any power for long. Some leader's today like Saddam Hussein who has all the power in his country, but has no respect at all, not even from his own people will soon not have power much more. It shows that respect is more important also because when Caesar declined the crown three times it shows that he was not a selfish man and did not want to intend one to his people of Rome. If your going to be a leader and have no respect how are you going to get votes for yourself, why would the people just vote on your powerfulness?In the book, Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare midway through the book, the conspirators assassinated Julius Caesar because they claimed they were in fear of Caesar's leadership so Brutus started taking over control of Rome. The people were shock at first that Caesar was killed, but when Brutus spoke out to the people, they we're glade and many people respected Brutus at that time. But, after hearing Mark Antony's speech about how Caesar was so respectful to his people to everyone he knew and even to his enemies, he cared about these people and the people of Rome we're even more in shock from hearing what Caesar wanted to do for his good people of Rome. After Antony's speech Brutus was very powerful but had loss total respect after killing Caesar for no "real true" reason. And that is why Brutus is being hunted down by the people of Rome because they want revenge back and Brutus' power of Rome will not last long. In Julius Caesar Act three, scene two; First plebeian reacts to Mark Antony's speech, "We'll burn the house of Brutus." Page 122. Also in the same scene the first plebeian also states, "Never, never. Come, away, away! We'll burn his body in the holy place and with the brands fire the traitors' houses. Take up the body." Page 124From the two quotes up above it just shows how fast a leader can have so much power and then not too long he or she is quickly assassinated by the people. If Brutus had been respectful instead of creating a murder scene then I believe he could have been the future crowned king...
