Cassius states that Caesar is no greater than he or Brutus (by birth), and is indeed a lesser man physically. So he feels it is wrong that he should be the one and only power in Rome, especially a Rome that was a Republic — and therefore all Roman men share political equality (ideally). He also implies later that Caesar doesn’t really like him and that upsets him: he isn’t part of Caesar’s inner circle.
