Was cicero a good man?
- LiliLv 72 months agoFavorite Answer
He had his faults. He adored his daughter Tullia and had a close relationship with her, but his marriages were failures, and he and his son didn't get along that well.
He was extremely ambitious and could be ruthless and rigid, as for example in the case of the Catiline Conspiracy, but he really does seem to have had the good of the Republic at heart. He actually expressed a wish that he'd been invited to participate in Caesar's assassination, which doesn't sound much like the words of a "good man," but since the fear was that Caesar was setting himself up as a dictator, they can be taken to represent a true moral conviction that the Republic had had to be defended from tyranny.
Make of that what you will.

The only Cicero I know of, was part of the Las Vegas Mafia.
