The theme of "The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street" a teleplay by Rod Serling, is Don't be quick to accuse others because you can make the situation worse than it already is. On Page 15, people start to throw rocks and destroy property for no reason but fear,accusations, and superstition. This shows that if we act out of fear and distrust, it can turn us against each other and harm others with no actual reason to do so. In conclusion, this is why you don't be quick to accuse others because you could make the situation worse than it already is.
What Was That?!
A meteor maybe?
Hey all the lights went out
Yeah that's really strange, even the cars wont work!
the boys right!
I'll go check with the Floral Street to see if the same thing is happening.
Its the alien!
Stay back I'm warning you!
It was a normal day in Maple Street until...
I said stay Back!!!
You killed him!. Your house is the only one with light on! No One Can Be trusted!
When a young boy says that its aliens people start to believe him because of the abnormal circumstances.
Every man for himself.
Then, a strange figure approaches them from the shadows while a man grabs his shotgun and aims.
And just like that, all you have to do to turn humans on each other is turn a few lights and cars on and off here and there.
The man with the shotgun shoots at whoever it is out of fear.
When they got a closer look and were in shock as it was Pete van Horn! This then made them turn on each other and now a peaceful street was a disaster.
I didn't know!
This is why you shouldn't be so quick to accuse others because you can make the situation worse than it already is or hurt somebody.
