We'll never know for sure what would have happened had the guy been stopped before he made it to the throne, but throughout the rest of Rome's history after Julius, we can see clear differences from the previous regime and obviously, the changes are rooted in what Julius did. You could argue that moldy bread caused Rome's collapse, I personally don't see any correlation between Julius's actions and the Fall. If anything, Julius prolonged the inevitable.

Just being first doesn't make someone great, I just meant that as a world power, Julius and Rome had more obstacles to hurdle that Washington wouldn't have had.

Read through some of the supporting arguements to get an idea. Basically though, if you and a friend were out in the woods and your friend somehow got their stomach cut open and their guts were coming out. The guy is screaming like crazy and you can't bear to see him like that. You have a gun in your pocket. Should you kill him and end his pain (mercy killing) or is killing in any context wrong and should watch him suffer, comforting him as best you can.

I'm not talking about a legal context. Think way out in the wilderness where there are no rules. I don't think the law provides any grounds for manslaughter and considers it all murder. What is a legal mercy killing?

I highly doubt anyone on this website is an expert on either American or Roman history so it would be next to impossible to judge the greatness of both men, not knowing the full context surrounding these giants. However, for arguement's sake, Julius Caeser was the better man for the following reasons.

(A) He came first.

(B) His empire was bigger

(C) He, as emperor, had bigger "shoes" to fill. He had more power and more responsibility

(D) Largely because of changes he made in Roman government, Rome had the stability and strength it needed to endure longer

(E) His empire expanded over many different cultures, religions, races and ethnicities

(F) He looked way cooler

Okay, you LEFT me no choice. (See what I did there?) Since two wrongs make a right, and you used the word "right" five times in your argument, you've made ten wrongs.

I hate to have to do this, but you leave me no choice. I've gotta tell you who I really am. I'm Matthew Crawley. I win...

But the problem is that people may not always be able to give their consent. People in comas for example or in excruciating pain. What if you're screaming so loud you can't even hear yourself think? What if you got your tongue cut out? I think it is an extremely hard decision to know when the right time to pull the trigger is, but an essential one to make.

Yeah, I just wanted to get some views into the air. There are definitely times when (I should hope) I would pull the trigger for a friend and definitely times when I'd want a friend to pull the trigger for me, but then there are people who think killing in any capacity is completely and utterly wrong.

Batman is just my disguise you idiot. I'm actually Eddard Stark so brace yourselves because heads will roll.

Winning Position: Mercy killing is justafiable
