Theme with TAG: The theme of "The Monsters are Due on Maple Street" a teleplay by Rod Serling is that you shouldn't blame things on people without evidence because it will cause disaster within those people and could even harm the ones around them. On page 8, on the last paragraph down when Don is talking , it shows why you should not blame things or else things will go mad.
It is night time and the neighborhood was standing outside looking at whatever just fell out of the sky.
The power goes out and everybody wonders what's happening, then Tommy comes out and tells everyone that there were aliens in the spaceship, and he told them that there was a family of aliens that came down in disguise, and made the people be disordered.
Someone tries to go see what's going on by driving to the sheriff's office, but his car didn't start so when he got out and walked away, it started up with nobody being anywhere near it.
They start accusing people that they were the aliens because one person's car started or another houses lights went on, so people started putting those people up for accusation.
Someone was walking down that street and another person thought he was an alien, so he took a shotgun and shot the man, just to reveal that it was just the man that lives in a house on the very back of the block.
The aliens come down and watch as the people on Maple Street break themselves apart by accusing each other that they were the aliens.
