In ¨The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street¨ by Rod Serling, one of the main themes is that blaming can lead to violence and treat people how you want to be treated. The first scene shows that Les Goodman got blamed for his car starting on its own. They blamed him because nobody could get their cars to work and his car did work. This led them to believe that Les Goodman was the monster that caused all of this to happen. For example: no power, the cars did not work, etc. In this
Evidence 1: In this scene, the people on Maple Street blame Les Goodman for his car starting on his own when nobody could get their cars to work and his car worked. This led them to believe that Les Goodman was the monster that caused all of this to happen, like no power, the cars did not work, etc.
Evidence 2: In this scene, Charlie blames Steve when he finds out that Steve has been working on this radio. This made Charlie think that Steve had something to do with the whole no power and the cars not starting.
Evidence 3: In this scene, everyone sees this shadow walking towards them, so Steve had a gun and Charlie took the gun and shot the person who ended up being their friend Pete Van Horn.
