I’m a romantic brought up as a republican or is it the other way round?

Watching Brave after George Gently is not a good idea for a child of the 60’s. The contrast between the idealism of George Gently and the ghastly romanticism of Disneyfied Scottish royalty is hard to take.On another occasion i might find Brave amusing but just now out signifies all that is wrong with the modern world, an excess of romanticism that idealises royalty and traditional power.
