Why do kids have to have a need for shopping? What if some do have money that they just don't happen to spend on trivial things. Maybe a visit to the café with a friend or two is more important.

Oh, I certainly don't think things are only culturally significant if they involve big outlays of money and score big in the mainstream. I leave that philosophy to the disillusioned!

In the interview I link, Okada says:

"There are realities that I want to change, and this may be a contradiction, but on the other hand I feel that there are people who are trying to make us feel that, “You guys are living an impoverished reality. There is a richer way of life.” I don’t want to become trapped in that kind of mentality. I am not saying the reality is happy or that life is rich, what I want to show through my plays when seen as theater is the rich potential of the individual people who are moving in the presence of complex factors and mechanisms surrounding them."

Yeah, there are many who have potential but somewhat never really sees that in themseves. Maybe because they are busy with the "complex factors and mechanisms" out there.
