In the 1960’s version, it was about a group of neighbors constantly being scapegoated for being part of an “alien invasion” into their neighborhood due to a recent power outage. In the 2003 version the same thing happened except they were being blamed for being a terrorist. Even though both films were made in completely different time periods they had the same message. “Fear of the unknown can cause people to turn on each other” To begin with, the neighbors in the 1960’s version of “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street” stared off as a beautiful normal day, but within only a few hours, the whole street went to chaos, fear, and distrust.

Elie Wiesel’s Night should not be banned from the book list for ninth grade because it is a book that teaches very important lessons despite the fact that it contains violent scenes. The book shows that we should treat people in a good way even if they are not like us. It reveals the horrible consequences of inhumanity, the meaningless suffering and unbearable pain of innocent people. These reasons show that the book is very important for the grown-ups because it deals with fundamental questions about humanity and moral values.
That line shows how restricted their society is science and technology can never advance because everyone has to understand something if they want to use or make it. Equality's light box works but they say it is not real because not everyone does not understand or agree on it.
