The theme of ¨The Monsters are due on Maple Street¨, a teleplay by Rod Serling is to don't be quick to blame because you can be jumping to the wrong conclusion based on fear , unreliable sources and wrong information. In page 14 , the Woman said ¨You killed him , Charlie. You shot him dead.¨ This shows that Charlie thought the one of his good friend Pete Van Horn was a monster based on fear. In conclusion , you should not be quick to blame based on fear or unreliable sources because it can go either way bad or good.
