Well, I don't think he would be tyrant because absolute power does not mean to be tyrant. Even if Caesar thinks he is the only one and he is the greatest, whatever! Most of kings in our history had that kind of thinking, but that doesn't mean that everyone were tyrant. I think he would be a great leader of Rome because actually he was great general before he died, and Antony and Brutus would helped him to not be tyrant. If he became tyrant after he became emperor, i think Antony also joined with the conspirators for sake of Rome
Well, If Julius Caesar wouldnt die, the play would probably be a little bit more longer than it already is lol. But I think that he would still die, because as everyone else said he would become a tyrant, and the commoners would be mad, and eventually Caesar would die.

Had Caesar's death not happened, the modern world would not have developed the way it did now. Hah! Obviously. I feel that, if Caesar survived to be crowned Emperor, today's political systems would've been different, and countries under the thumb of a cruel dictator would've been a normal everyday occurrence. All in all, I'm glad he died
Hmm i kind of think differently from you guys. Yes, Caesar would become a tyrant and have complete control over Rome. However, he is known as the great fighter and also he would be more intelligent than anyone else in Rome and have an idea of how to rule Rome and how to make Rome successful. For example, Park Jeong Hui (a former president, the father of future president Park Geun hae) had full power of South Korea. Park Jeong Hui had re-created South Korea after the Korean War and yes he had to be a tyrant leader in order to do that because there were stupid and uneducated citizens out there that didn't know anything but tried to go again him. And because of his tyrant leadership he had created how it is Today.
I agree with you, Caesar will probably will become a tyrant and will just ruin the Rome with his self-importance and arrogance. He wont make any wise decision to preserve Rome. Who knows though, maybe if he became a tyrant no matter how much support he gets there are always people that will hate him. Him becoming a tyrant might cause lot of dislikes by people and he probably will still get assassinated.
Well, caesar was going to become a dictator and most dictators are tyrants. If the conspirators didn't stop that from happening, then caesar will just become a dictator easily without much obstacles. Caesar might take advantage of the citizens since they are easily persuaded. That monologue before his death basically threatened Rome. He indirectly showed us that he is arrogant and stubborn. Changing his mind won't be easy. Back then Rome was republic so basically the senate and the government are balanced. With Julius Caesar, such balance will be tipped off.
I personally have 2 ideas when he have not died. First one is that same idea as you woojong where he becomes tirant. Gets rid of all the laws in Rome and remake them only to benefit himself, also kill all the people that goes against him where he will kill Brutus and people will al go crazy, from this point people will start to hate Julius Caesar and he will die by rebelion. Second one is the idea of Faith or Destiny. As we talked this about this word "DESTINY" threw out the entire story about the 3 men or women holding the string of destiny that can't be avoided. So if he avoided his destiny of dieing to the Conspirators somehow the strings have been cut and that chaos will occure in the world and bunch of things will happen until Caesar dies and before he dies put back things in to right thing.
well, if caesar was alive then he would be a tyrant and nobady can do anything about that...but people would secretly come in and could kill caesar in any way such as poison or killing him in his sleep. like yeajin said...it is DESTINY
