One major theme of the teleplay "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street " by Rod Sterling is Fear and suspicion are destructive. The first example of this would be that when Les's car started up by it's self his neighbors turned on him immediately and they lost a good friend they had known for years. Further more, although Steve's wife tried to explain what she had said about Steve spending so much time in the basement the people refused to listen to her and turned on the only peacemaker who had not turned on anybody. Lastly, When electricity goes off in Charlies house without hesitation the people of maple street begin to accuse him because of the fear they might be accused next. This only led to more violence and harm to the people and friendships of maple street.
