Comedian, author and actor Albert Brooks has a novel out about the near future. It takes place in the year 2030 and is named 2030: The Real Story of What Happens to America.
In it, aging baby boomers are in a constant struggle with the younger generation over politics, resources and other things. I've seen other predictions of the coming “generational wars.” And Brooks discussed this in a recent USA Today interview.
USA Today: Old people are targets in your novel. You're 63. Do you worry about this scenario?
Brooks: Yes, I have. I've always thought because of our generation — the size of it — it's apparent that unless we're killed off by some Boomer flu, we're going to be here and people are going to have to deal with us.
Your opinion: Generational wars coming soon?
