I see what you're saying. I'm sorry, I misread what you said.

Now that we're on the same (at least similar) page, I agree with your point.

Additionally, I don't see much wrong with Caesar's decisions. In some light, he can be seen as a really good guy.

This viewpoint holds that the Roman Republic was extremely corrupt (widely regarded as true). They feared Caesar was becoming too popular after his great successes, particularly after the first Invasion of England. So they ordered him to step down from his rank as general. He refuses, and a civil war ensued when he entered into an official Roman province with his legion with weapons. He won, and, well, you know the rest.
So this holds that he was really just disobeying a fearful order issued by a corrupt government.
Some even go on to say that by replacing the Republic with the Empire, he widely eliminated corruption in the government. Of course, this still led the Emperor be corrupt, but this is more of a totalitarian or Machiavellian viewpoint, that the very nature of having a monarch is desired or required.

As a quick note, I'd like to point something out. While I'm not by any means accusing you of this, some people try to talk about Caesar based on what they read in Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Julius Caesar play. I frankly find this entirely ridiculous and can't see why people do it. It's a fucking play.
Even the part about him being deaf in his left year wasn't at all accurate. There's no reports of him being deaf in any ear.

While there is still a lot of debate about Caesar, not only the consequences of his reign but also exactly what he did, I don't think he was as related to the fall of Rome as you imply.
He was assassinated 44BC, and the formal end of Rome happened a little over 500 years after.
Most historians agree that that the fall of Rome happened because it got too big for its own good. They neither had the military numbers nor the food required to maintain the borders of and feed the nation, respectively. Granted, Caesar conquered a lot of the land in the western region, as you noted, let's not forgot that after Caesar, the Empire kept growing. Rome got to be so large as to encompass most of North Africa, and stretched Easterly past Turkey, dipping its fingers into the Middle East. Also, we have to face the fact that if Caesar didn't conquer the parts of Europe he did, some other Roman would have.

We also have to fact the fact that over 300 years after Caesar, Diocletian separated the country into East, governed out of Constantinople/Istanbul/Byzantium, and West, governed out of the city of Rome. Though the country was still considered "one", just with two councils ruling over different regions. This made the country weaker as a whole, even if Eastern Rome didn't 'fall' at the same time or as severely as the West did.

Honestly, the final nail in the coffin was Apathy. Every now and again, Rome did get beaten, and the conqueror just installed himself as the new emperor and life went on. It just so happens that the last guy to beat Rome didn't want to be Emperor, though he still kept the land. Worth noting that the last Emperor was about 12 .

As for Caesar himself, he did create Rome. Sort of. He transformed it from the Republic of Rome to the Roman Empire. There's some debate about whether he or his adopted Heir Octavian/Augustus was the first "true" Emperor.

I didn't say that he had anything to do with the ultimate fall of Rome, that was certainly tied to the failings of the Tetrarchy, I was just pointing out that people tend to glorify Julius Caesar as a ruler because he is near the limit of their knowledge on Rome. Julius Caesar ended the REPUBLIC, not the entire nation.

I think you are also biased towards your interpretation of Julius Caesar, "single handedly brought down the republic"...I think it's a bit harsh and not really true, not if we look at the context.
I have read a bit about Rome, but I'd like to read more. Can you recommend any books?
User avatar #17 - Awesomenessniss (07/07/2014) [-]
I don't have books to recommend I just got my information from a course i took in the Classical World and from my Latin professor who talks about Rome all the time, sorry.

That's not what the content is implying though. Julius Caesar is the most prominent and well known figure associated with ancient rome and so it's fair enough to use his name when referring to the empire. On top of that it was Caesar that did much to advance the empire, conquering much of what is now France and Germany as well as invading Britain. I think it's rational what the content is stating and you're simply allowing your personal bias and distaste for tumblr to cloud your judgement.
User avatar #15 - Awesomenessniss (07/07/2014) [-]
"Julius Caesar is the most prominent and well known figure... On top of that it was Caesar that did much to advance the empire." It's true that he created the "empire", but to do that he turned himself into a tyrant, an absolute monarch, he single-handedly brought down the Roman Republic and his legacy included his adopted son becoming emperor, turning his father into a god, and executing human history's greatest statesman, Marcus Tullius Cicero, for speaking out against him. He did conquer a great amount of land, but that was only because he was given special permission by the senate. It was good that he was assassinated and a shame it didn't happen sooner. Excuse my personal bias for understanding history.
