A metaphor for the American consumer conscience.

It's a lighthouse, that means they have to truck in heavy supplies: food, fuel, water, etc. I don't think anyone would want to carry, by hand, those kinds of supplies the 200 or 300 feet. Plus it would take forever; I've lived out in the middle of nowhere and I wouldn't have wanted to haul all the food, firewood, fuel, and other supplies one regularly needs 200 feet every time we bought them.

It would, of course, be much better to use an xtracycle, bakfiet, or some kind of cargo bicycle, but the car is not as unreasonable as you assume. Plus it was probably easier to get their hands on a small car for that purpose than a cargo bike.

Looks like a promo shot of the nowhere to which a bridge was once proposed...

Detractor, ok good point about the light house. That does kinda of make sense.. I guess. It's really just about using more than you need. remember those big red wagons from child hood?
