The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street Theme: Don't blame someone just because of their actions or past actions.
In "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street" by Rod Serling, one of the main themes is that don't blame someone just because of their actions or past actions. This is the theme because you can't be blaming someone just because of what they do or what they used to do. For Example, they started to blame someone of what they heard about the person or what they see what they do. Another example was, when they were blaming Les goodman just because of what he did and what they heard about him, when Charlie's house's lights all of a sudden turned on they started to blame him. You shouldn't just blame someone just because of what someone says about them and what you see what they do. This is the theme because all of the people where just focusing on who caused this and who is doing this.
Evidence 1: In this scene when Les Goodman's car starts up by itself they immediately blame him just because none of the other cars would start up, but his was the only one.
Evidence 2: In this scene they started to be more judgmental and start blaming him more just because someone said that his wife told them that he works on something down in the basement.
Evidence 3: In this scene when they were wasting their time trying to figure out who was it and who was causing this, it turned out according to the aliens that they were the monsters and that's maybe why they chose maple street.
