Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Boomer Generation used their size to great political advantage to accomplish their goals. But they are about to be repaid by the Zoomers, GenZ (1997-2012). They are already the largest age cohort in the population and all will be of voting age by 2030. GenZ is larger than the Boomer Generation, far more to the left on political and social issues and, from what we can tell, are happy to make their desires known. If they register to vote in large numbers and actually turn out, as they did in 2020 they can outvote the remaining Boomers, possibly by 2024 and certainly by 2028.

If the USA can avoid falling into a Fascist White Supremacist dystopia courtesy of Trump and his followers we may well be able to deal effectively with the huge problems that will face GenZ and the upcoming Alpha Generation. But the threat from Trump and the Trumpistas will remain serious at least until Trump either dies or goes to prison. I am hoping for prison, ideally before 2022.
