Well, my feelings and your feelings might be very different, but I mostly feel sad. Why? Because the common people seem to genuinely care for Caesar, but can't think particularly clearly. As a result, the rulers of Rome can whip them into a frenzy and point the mob in whatever direction they want. (At least Mark Anthony can, and I assume other good speakers could.)

I felt that they common people in Rome are very loyal to Julius Caesar and their loyalty is unquestionable. They had  played no part or participate in any of the treachery to cause the tragic death of him. They are very caring towards him and would follow his every rule and not rebelled or fight back against it, they would simply do as they are told.
