If idealism is a "tragic flaw" in Brutus, then isn't it also a "tragic flaw" in Jesus? If he had only co-operated with the Sanhedrin and the Romans he wouldn't have been crucified, right? But I think Jesus would have said that his ideals were more important than not getting killed, and I think Brutus (at least in the way Shakespeare portrayed him) would have said the same.
Curiously, Dante portrays Brutus as a villain because he betrayed his friend and benefactor. Would treachery make more sense as a tragic flaw?

First thing to consider it that the title alone tells us the play will be a tragedy. Everyone dies at the play, yet we know that the Rome survives.

They both commited suicide due to realizing that they were losing the battle against Antony and Octavius at Phillipi. They are different because Cassius didn't neede to beg anyone to kill him his slave Pindarus had no trouble killing Cassius because it meant he was free from his rule and Cassius wouldn't be missed by most where as Brutus had to beg his soldiers to kill him because Brutus was an honorable man and prior to the speech of Antony at Caesar's funeral, was beloved by by the Romans.eventually the slave named Clitus allowed Brutus to run upon his sword.
