The theme of "The Monsters are due on Maple Street", a teleplay by Rod Sterling, is that violence is not an answer and the neighbors don't know who the alien was because they all started attacking each other because the lights are going off in everyones homes even though the powers off. In paragraph 16, everyone went crazy and started killing each other and screaming and blaming it in one another. This shows that when you get rid of power on Maple Street, everyone goes crazy and get from being friends to enemies. In conclusion, the people are making a big deal of something so small.
HE IS AN ALIEN!
The story took place on Maple Street and the characters were Steve Brand, Charles’s Wife, Mrs. Goodman, Mrs. Brand, Tommy, Woman, Don Martin, Sally (Tommy's Mother), Man One, Man Two, Pete Van Horn, Charlie, Les Goodman.
The problem is that the whole power went out and that Tommy suspects its an alien which makes everyone worried.
Everyone started to go against each other and started to question one another.
Humans are so dumb.
Everyone was calling each other aliens and they found evidence.
They were attacking each other and they were the ones who were the aliens.
At the end Tommy was right that the aliens caused the lights to go off.
