Two points.
First, and poss slightly off-topic, Americans need to realise that 9/11 only matters to them. The rest of the world, which has always been very aware of its own mortality, just doesn't really care.

Second, you are really really fooling yourself if you think that this kidultism (what a stupid word) represents some kind of reaction against corporations - it is just the opposite, its a massive appeal to corporates to play mummy and daddy to a generation that has only ever known corporate control. That, combined with a blanket perception that Japan is cool (despite it being the 2nd most racist society on earth next to USA, the 2nd most sexist society on earth next to UK, the second most socially oppressive nation on earth next toChina, and THE most corporate controlled society on earth) adds up to an attitude of "just sell me anything that lets me avoid thinking."
