if you can't help someone?

        What good is life, if we can't help others get to where they want to be?

Человек с рюкзаком пролазит через забор из колючей проволоки

        It is a blessing when we are able to lend someone a helping hand. Some may say they are always the ones who need help. They may begin to consider themselves victims, poor and of less value to the world. Though they may have less, if such is their way of thinking, their poverty is in failing to spot the opportunity to help someone else. Opportunities come our way every day. When we are focussed on our own need to the detriment of the need of others, we are at risk of missing the golden opportunities that can change not only the lives of others, but also our own.

You are special too.

The Author: I. F. Stone (1907–1989) was an American journalist and publisher. After working at the New York Post, the Nation (as editor from 1940–1946), and PM, he started his own journal, I. F. Stone’s Weekly, in 1953. This publication notably covered the New Deal, McCarthyism, the birth of Israel, and the Vietnam War. In 1999, I. F. Stone’s Weekly was voted the second-best print-journalism product of the entire twentieth century in a poll of fellow reporters. Stone also published more than a dozen books and was considered one of the most influential journalists of the post-war period.

Title: The Hidden History of the Korean War, 1950–1951 By I. F. Stone and Bruce Cumings

I F Stone's book by Open Road Media


“A great journalist” raises troubling questions about the forgotten war in this courageous, controversial book—with a new introduction by Bruce Cumings (The Baltimore Sun).

“Much about the Korean War is still hidden, and much will long remain hidden. I believe I have succeeded in throwing new light on its origins.” —From the author’s preface

In 1945 US troops arrived in Korea for what would become America’s longest-lasting conflict. While history books claim without equivocation that the war lasted from 1950 to 1953, those who have actually served there know better. By closely analysing US intelligence before June 25, 1950 (the war’s official start), and the actions of key players like John Foster Dulles, General Douglas MacArthur, and Chiang Kai-shek, the great investigative reporter I. F. Stone demolishes the official story of America’s “forgotten war” by shedding new light on the tangled sequence of events that led to it.

The Hidden History of the Korean War was first published in 1952—during the Korean War—and then republished during the Vietnam War. In the 1990s, documents from the former Soviet archives became available, further illuminating this controversial period in history.
