It is hard to see the potential in yourself when you are surrounded by people you consider failures.
I used to live in Dayton -- know just how you feel RRR. Let me tell you though, the whole country isn't like that. You should check out the Bay area sometime. It's very progressive here.
Social drag is sort of an interesting idea for a book. Thematically, it makes sense to me that the next book would be about how to interact with one's environment from a TLP perspective. Social drag is one aspect of that. Relationships and career might be a couple more areas that people would appreciate more specific analysis on.
