Miller's message is simple..... don't get caught up in the hysteria because it can snowball into unimaginable horror. Fear causes people to do things completely out of character with who they are. Don't allow yourself to become a part of wh we today call "mob mentality."
I think that the author's main message in this play is that people should be aware of how much we can get swept up in hysteria and what bad things can occur when we do. He is saying that we tend to lose our heads when we are afraid of something.
