Hum of humanity
In William Shakespeare’s play Julius Caesar, about the assassination of the military general and would-be dictator, Caesar’s friend Mark Antony builds his power with propaganda tools to stir the hearts and minds of ordinary people to rise up against knife-wielding assassins Brutus and Cassius.
