The Monsters Are Due on Main Street USA

Episode 22 / Season One of Twilight Zone  – The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street – aired on March 4, 1960.

Over the course of several hours, a quiet residential neighborhood in AnyTown USA has its daily routines altered.  Their taken-for-granteds taken away.  Paranoia overwhelms the residents of “Maple Street”.   Neighbors blame neighbors. Violence consumes the neighborhood. … The camera pans back showing two “aliens from outer space” observing:

Alien One:Just disrupt their daily routines they take for granted.. Throw them into darkness for a few hours, and then sit back and watch the pattern.  With few variations. They pick the most dangerous enemy they can find, and it’s themselves. All we need do is sit back and watch.

Alien Two: Then I take it this place, this Maple Street is not unique.

Alien One: By no means. Their world is full of Maple Streets.  We’ll let them destroy themselves. One to the other, one to the other …

Narrator / Rod Serling:  The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. Simple thoughts, attitudes, prejudices are weapons to be found only in the minds of men.  Prejudices can kill, and suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its ownfor the residents of Main Street USA.


Instead of “space aliens” …  substitute the CCP – Chinese Communists Party. … sitting back, enjoying America Destroy Itself.   Abandoning its fundamental principals in favor of barbaric anarchy.

Americans angrily and irreparably divided ….  overt media-fueled hyperbole … corrupt politicians of both parties trading accusations of who is more corrupt … the supposed “Leaders” of our nation behaving like kindergarteners without their daily Ritalin dose.

The CCP watch and patiently wait … as the very foundation that made America The Greatest Nation in History crumbles.  For “That Shining City on a Hill” to self-destruct.

Has it already passed the “Could” with only the “When” to be determined?

The natural state of man is tyranny, we’re just resuming our ‘default’ position. . Why is this happening? Not the Chinese, they’re just exploiting the situation. If not them someone else. Our problems are we don’t believe in ourselves. We don’t know our history, we don’t understand our history and we don’t respect our history. In America today anything, any ideology or notions of grievance, rights etc. find fertile ground in our ‘country’ of agnostics and nihilists. Our Elites are for sale and our people are under control. . How did it happen? There are a million reasons but number… Read more »
