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?
Yeah that's really strange, even the cars wont work!
Pete please don't go. The aliens don't want you to leave.
Please sweetie, don't be saying that, there just stupid comic books.
Your car just turned on! You got some explaining to do! Are so a alien or something!?
It not my fault my car turns on randomly!
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!
Pete Van horn says that he will check floral Street to see if there having the same problem but Tommy is telling him not to leave because aliens are here.
Every man for himself.
After Mr.Goosemans car turns on and off, they get suspicious and confront him.
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.
Suddenly, they are approached by a shadow and they thinks its an alien.Charlie then shoots his shotgun at the figure approaching them.
When they got a closer look and were in shock as it was Pete van Horn! This then made them turn on each other because they couldn't trust eachother 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.
