Beth SugarFate is a subject that can be seen in two different ways. Some believe you can control your fate, others believe that your fate is controlled for you by a greater power.

This decision was much like Brutus's decision to kill Caesar. They must both weigh the pros and cons before proceeding with a final decision. But he also could not control all of his fate, for Ender could not control the fact that he was born third, so he was different from his siblings. In the story Anthem the citizens had no control over their fate, almost every decision in their life was decided by "fate", their job, their house, their friends everything. They had no choices. Caesar had control over many others people's fates, but I do not believe he had as much control over his own fate. He could execute anyone or control an entire army and make decisions for them, but I believe that Caesar was too powerful to be in control of his own fate. A large group (the conspirators) was able to go against Caesar, the most powerful man in Rome, and take him down. Because of the amount of power Cesar had he didn't believe anyone was against him, so he did not see his attack coming. This proves that fate can work in our favor or use our own power against us.
