Rod Serling, the highly acclaimed film writer and television producer/director, is known for his groundbreaking science fiction series “The Twilight Zone.” Airing on the American television network CBS from 1959-1964, his thought-provoking narratives are “strangely” relevant for our times. Serling concludes each episode with a philosophical reflection. Most still “speak” to us. This is especially true of his closing remarks from “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street” (1960): “The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simple thoughts, attitudes, prejudices – to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all its own – for the children, and children yet unborn.” In the times we live in, one would be hard pressed to find an observation more fitting than this.
