The Crucible is a tragedy because the rules that are usually followed, the rules that we count on to be followed are not. In fact much of what normal people accept as true is inverted. Especially the fact that those who are good are being put on trial and killed for crimes they have not committed. And so the staement "Do that which is good, and no harm shall come to thee," is false.
