The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street Theme: Thought Can be Weapons
Evidence 1. In this scene residents on Maple street were arguing about who the monster was, they killed someone who was just going to the next block to see if the power was on.
In "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street"by Rod Serling, I think that the theme is thoughts can be a weapon. I think this because a lot of actions they did were because of the thoughts. My first example supports my theme because I am showing that Charlie kills Pete Van Horn. He did it because he was thinking it was a monster after that fight Maple Street had and was not thinking if it was a person. My next example supports my theme because, They turned on Charlie because the light in his house came on then they thought he was the monster so residents started throw rock at Charlie, They thought that he was a monster and used there thoughts as weapons by throwing rocks. My last example shows that Thought can be weapons because, Charlie told Maple street that he was not monster and said that Tommy was because he knew what was going to happen. But Maple Street Chasing Tommy and his mother because they thought that he was the monster they were using a weapon of there thoughts.These are some evidence of why I think the theme is thoughts can be weapons.
Evidence 2. In this scene when the residence on Maple Street saw the lights go on in Charlie house they all started to question him, and also throw rocks at him also tackle him.
Evidence 3. In this scene Charlie said that Tommy was the monster because he knew what was going to happen.Then residence on Maple Street started to chase Tommy and his mother.
