** The idea that you can commoditize lifespan is pure fantasy.
** Aging is not caused by an "aging gene," but rather through a number of factors. Damage is sustained to DNA due to repeated splitting and copying necessary for cellular division, the skin becomes thinner and wrinkled with age mainly due to exposure to ultraviolet radiation, joints wearing out simply due to use over time, and so on.

* HateSink: Fortis. While the main antagonistic force is the system, Fortis is not part of said system and only serves as proof of how people can take advantage of it and use it to make innocents suffer severely.

* FollowTheLeader: A future dystopia in which society is divided into twelve districts—I mean, “time zones”—based on wealth, a young person from the poorest time zone leads a revolt against the system, and the elderly (in actual years) representative of the ruling class coldly explains why such brutality is necessary for his zone’s survival and prosperity.

* BlondGuysAreEvil: Fortis the Minute Man is a strong contender for Most Unpleasant Person In The Universe. The only other guy that comes close is Weis who, to keep things balanced, is actually dark-haired.

* WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide: The government has created a system where each citizen has a gun to his or her head, and people drop dead in the streets (which is commonplace enough that everyone shrugs it off) as these guns are constantly triggered. What to do in such a situation? Why, constantly repeat how 'necessary'' the system is!
** Nobody mentions the generations ''before'' the system was put in place. After all, the government would, effectively, have to force people to have their unborn children undergo genetic therapy to limit their lifespan. At some point, people before the gene therapy would have died from either natural causes or violence.
