I agree with some, but not all of those points.
Cute but empty stories are the cancer that is killing anime.
That's not really a fair comment because a lot of people like that kind of thing. Not everyone wants something solid all the time (or ever, and that's OK too.) Sometimes you just want fluff. Now admittedly some fluff is better than others but still... A good story is always nice, but not 100% vital in an otherwise entertaining show.
Take something like Uta~Kata. It's literally a magical girl series with no villains. It's basically about girls hanging out over summer break and there's a neat transformation and a costume every episode. That didn't keep it from being a good and entertaining show though. Did it make me think hard and work to understand it? No. Was it entertaining and worth watching? Absolutely.
Or what about the people who bring us insane mind **** shows like Lain and Texhnolyze and then turn around and make silly, laid back slice of life series like NieA_7?

Japan monopolizes anime which limits the aggregate creativity of the medium.
I'm not sure what this means exactly.
Over the years an awful lot of people outside of Japan have attempted to make anime/manga and most of the time it hasn't worked. To some extent it's because people have this idea that anime/manga is inherently Japanese and everyone else who trys to draw that way is a poseur. My opinion though is that it's because people who would normally draw and write in their own style are going out of their way to try and make 'anime', and unsurprisingly (to me anyway) it doesn't work. This isn't always the case of course. There's a good amount of non-japanese 'anime' out there but there is a LOT more that's complete crap.
Not all of it had to be crap though. Some probably would have been a lot better had the authors and artists not gone out of their way to try and make 'anime' instead of doing things in their own style.
