Romanticism and Democracy

Asked the previous litera team:
Is there a connection between the ideals of Romanticism and Democracy?
Here's one of the best responses from Tanph.

Government has always been a major part of the ability of a person to express himself.  An oppressive government would prevent such expression.  However, democracy, a government centered on the expression of the people, facilitates the articulation of one's feelings.  This enables the person to practice Romanticism which is concerned with the natural, free-flowing thought geared towards the ideal.  Democracy facilitates the expression in Romanticism.
