Romans, countrymen, and lovers! hear me for my cause, and be silent, that you may hear: believe me for mine honour, and have respect to mine honour, that you may believe: censure me in your wisdom, and awake your senses, that you may the better judge. If there be any in this assembly, any dear friend of Caesar's, to him I say, that Brutus' love to Caesar was no less than his. If then that friend demand why Brutus rose against Caesar, this is my answer: Ð Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more. Had you rather Caesar were living and die all slaves, than that Caesar were dead, to live all free men? As Caesar loved me, I weep for him; as he was fortunate, I rejoice at it; as he was valiant, I honour him: but, as he was ambitious, I slew him. There is tears for his love; joy for his ambition. Who is here so base that would be a bondman? If any, speak; for him have I offended. Who is here so rude that would not be a Roman? If any, speak; for him have I offended. Who is here so vile that will not love his country? If any, speak; for him have I offended. I pause for a reply.

If any, speak; for him have I offended. Who is here so vile that will not love his country? He's basically saying that as much as everyone loves Caesar, He was going to ruin Rome, and it's people. He was using the Romans' pride for their empire to agree with him. And also using their pride of their laws, and sense of freedom, and social status , for he knows no one wants to die a slave. He could have done better on: As Caesar loved me, I weep for him; as he was fortunate, I rejoice at it; as he was valiant, I honour him: but, as he was ambitious, I slew him. There is tears for his love; joy for his ambition. Because that said that he was a close friend, and he back stabbed Caesar by betraying and murdering him. The Romans at that time had pride of being there for their friends, for being loyal, and never giving up due to different views. That is helps keeping them united. So that shows, in a sense, that Brutus was a bit unstable, and therefore not really good for the economy, as they know at the time this speech was made, the economy wasn't at it's peak.
