Cassius wants the conspirators to swear their “resolution,” but Brutus thinks their honor should hold them together (2.1.125); Cassius thinks the conspirators should kill Antony but Brutus disagrees (2.1.170-80); Cassius thinks Antony should not speak to the crowd after the assassination, but Brutus thinks he should and allows him to do this (3.1. 250-260.  Had they sworn their allegiance, perhaps the group would have held together; had they killed Antony or had they not allowed him to speak, he would not have been able to organize an army against them.
