Question description

Kasson argues that Coney Island was a harbinger of the new mass urban culture.  But he does not suggest that the new patterns of behavior of Coney Island overthrew existing social expectations.  He instead concludes that the amusement park was “a safety valve, a mechanism of social release and control that ultimately protected existing society.  Its fantasy led not to a new apprehension of social possibilities but toward passive acceptance of the cycle of production and consumption” (109).  What does he mean? Be as specific as possible.
