The Monsters are due on Maple Street Theme:Jumping to conclusions can be destructive
In"The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street" by Rod Sterling,one of the main themes is Jumping to conclusions can be destructive.The scene where they jump to conclusions is when Les Goodman car starts and he was not even in it.This shows it because everybody starts ganging up on him.Also they never wondered what could have started it the just started screaming,asking questions,and saying that he has always been a weird person when he comes outside in the middle of the night.Second,When they start accusing charlie and they were just on his side.One of the women said that charlie has a suspicious radio downstairs in his basement instead of asking what kind of radio it is they said he was talking to aliens.Last,is when they all start screaming out peoples names and saying they were the monsters.To conclude,my three facts have a lot of different themes they could go to but this I think they work best for.
Evidence 1: In this scene....They start accusing Les Goodman because his car starts when he is not in it.
Evidence 2:In this scene.....They start saying Charlie is suspicious to because of the radio in his basement.
Evidence 3: In this scene......They start running around accusing everyone that lives on Maple street.
