Re: Gun fanatics: Rod Serling and the people on Maple Street have a message for you . . .
Found the script.... the words in it are powerful


[link to www-pbm.stjohns.k12.fl.us]
 Quoting: Indysmindy


Thank you for posting the script - PERFECT!



Dialogue from the original Twilight Zone script:

EXACTLY what TPTB today are doing to the sheeple . . . and the sheeple, 2013, are responding just as expected:



People shout, accuse, and scream as the lights go on and off. Then, slowly, in the middle of this nightmarish confusion of sight and sound, the camera starts to pull away until, once again, we have reached the opening shot looking at the Maple Street sign from high above.

The camera continues to move away while gradually bringing into focus a field. We see the metal side of a spacecraft that sits shrouded in darkness. An open door throws out a beam of light from the illuminated interior. Two figures
appear, silhouetted against the bright lights. We get only a vague feeling of form.



Figure One:
Understand the procedure now?

Just stop a few of their machines and radios and telephones and lawn mowers. . . . Throw them into darkness for a few hours, and then just sit back and watch the pattern.


Figure Two:
And this pattern is always the same?


Figure One:
With few variations.

They pick the most dangerous enemy they can find . . .and it’s themselves.

And all we need do is sit back . . . and watch
.


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


Figure One (shaking his head ):
By no means.

Their world is full of Maple Streets.

And we’ll go from one to the other and let them destroy themselves. One to the other . . . one to the other . . . one to the other

Re: Gun fanatics: Rod Serling and the people on Maple Street have a message for you . . .
I suggest that all the gun fanatics on this forum take half an hour and watch an episode of the Twilight Zone entitled:

The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street

It's a very enlightening episode, quite applicable to what you are all doing in regards to what you perceive as a near future and inevitable total disarmament of all American citizens.

I am quite sure the irony of this TZ episode will escape most of you . . . but for those who get it, perhaps it will make you understand that your hysterical rantings and frenetic panic are PRECISELY what TPTB WANT.

SETTLE THE HELL DOWN.

Don't be so paranoid.

They are NOT going to disarm every American.

You are ALL playing THEIR game.

STOP.

THINK.

THINK SOME MORE.

And then go on about your business as usual.

I think that's been tried for the last 24 years or so...

I placed that quote UNDER the remake video posted by the other poster. And I did so to illustrate how it correlates to NOW.

I earlier posted some dialogue from the ORIGINAL - which is also pertinent to today's mentalities.

Rather than criticizing (wrongly) my posts, why don't you pay attention to the actual POINT of this thread.

It is very significant to what is playing out and everyone should pay attention.

your thread title contains "Rod Serling" so it seems as though you've not only allowed the subject to drift but are actively encouraging it so as to cloud your original premise and support your interpretation of the episode.

it now is clear that you don't want to discuss the actual episode at hand anymore, if you ever did to begin with, so I'll leave you with this, many of us just no longer care about being on government lists and we are going to have our say, no matter what happens. c'est la vie.

I actually don't even know what to post in reply to that . . . you have rambled into something that makes no sense.

But what the hell, I'll give it a go . . .

Yes, my thread title contains the name Rod Serling because he was the creator/writer of The TZ . . . what's your problem with that?

Serling was, imo, ahead of his time . . . he had an insight about humans and life on earth that many people did not have at that time.

Ok? Got it?

I have not allowed the subject to "drift" at all.

I have, in fact, encouraged discussion here about the episode in question and tried to get people to pay attention to the correlation to what is playing out now in America.

Understand?

Now . . . omg . . . I can't even comment further because each time I look back up and read your post I realize how it makes absolutely NO sense . . .

You just rambled and rambled and said NOTHING.

Now if you want to TRY and discuss the content of the Maple Street episode, we can do that.

Otherwise, take your nonchalance about being on gov lists and stay off this thread.

Gun fanatics? Do you have a hobby? If you were a stamp collector and the government was threatening to ban stamps would you not go out to buy that stamp to complete your collection or that stamp you always wanted? With the government threatening to ban so called "assault weapons" then people are looking to get that gun now vs never being able to purchase in the future.
Have you been to a gun shop recently? Hand guns are plentiful, only scary black rifles are being purchased before the 2nd assault weapons ban. Nobody at any gun shop I have been to is afraid of confiscation.
It represents my belief in personal freedom and my sense of individuality.
