Well if we are a country "Trapped In Cultural Adolescence" as you put it, explain to me how in 239 years we have gone from 13 rag-tag colonies that were fighting for our independence to the most power nation militarily, economically, and culturally in the history of the world (these are historical facts). Yes we do waste a lot of time on frivolously crap. And because of that we invented things like the internet, cell phones and countless other frivolously inventions as you put. And right now I can agree with you that we are losing our way. This is due to the piss poor leadership coming from our political leaders (both Republican (the Establishment wing of the party) and Democrats).
But this remember this Country "Trapped In Cultural Adolescence" has spread its culture and done more for others than any nation in the history of mankind, yes we've made our share of mistakes as all nations in history have. Yet whenever there is a natural disaster we are there lending a hand, how many nations before us did that?

We can't blame corporations and government for our problems anymore.
It's time for us to realize that we are the system.
