“The tools of conquest
do not necessarily come with bombs
and explosions and fallout.
There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes,
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 the children yet unborn.
And the pity of it is…that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.”
Rod Serling, The Monsters Due on Maple Street, The Twilight Zone,
Season 1, Episode 22, March 4, 1960
