What is also interesting, is that some members of the Senate thought the citizens of Rome would be glad that Caesar was killed but it wasn't the case. Not unlike today, the Senate was way out of touch with the everyday citizen and whereas the Senate didn't like Caesar taking away some of their powers, the masses didn't care a thing about it. It was the Senators who selfishly wanted Caesar killed.
Mobs broke out seeking to kill those involved in the assassination which led to many politicians running for their lives thus no longer being Senators. Then wars broke out as various people of power wanted Caesar's job. The fact is, the Senators involved in the assassination didn't think through the aftermath of their decision. Unfortunately, it was the citizens of Rome who became collateral damage. Thousands of years later it's still the same, disgusting political maneuvering by both parties leaves us as collateral damage.
