Joe Haldeman is an American ScienceFiction writer who burst onto the scene with his controversial 1970s novel, ''Literature/TheForeverWar'', which was very loosely based on his experiences in the still-ongoing Vietnam War. The novel won both the UsefulNotes/{{Hugo|Award}} and UsefulNotes/{{Nebula Award}}s. His later novel, ''Forever Peace'', which was unrelated (though a SpiritualSuccessor), also won both those awards. He has written over twenty-five novels, and many short stories. In 2010, he was declared a [[UsefulNotes/DamonKnightMemorialGrandMasterAward Grand Master]] by the Science Fiction Writers of America.

* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: Played ''heroically'' in ''Forever Peace'', where the main characters discover that a project to recreate and study the early Big Bang will, well...cause a new Big Bang. Given that humanity now has the means to ''wipe out the universe'', the heroes decide to force the war-torn near-future Earth into peace by [[spoiler:forcibly implanting neural jacks into key figures in the multinational military, and then hooking them up to each other and many others to force empathy and the inability to kill (directly or indirectly) on them]], and then eventually on to humanity at large. The final death toll of their project is actually quite small, and it is much more favorable compared to the alternative.

* NudityEqualsHonesty: In ''Forever Peace'', the heroes discover that mentally linking humans for as long as a month will cause them to become "humanized" and turn pacifistic, even if they were serial killers or psychopaths. Towards the end a large group of war vets and refugees undergo the process, and when the complex is attacked they all strip naked and exit as a crowd to show they mean no harm.

* ApocalypseHow ApocalypseHow/{{Class X-4}}: The possibility of accidentally doing this to ourselves is the focus of ''Forever Peace''. A massive supercollider with a diameter the same as one of Jupiter's moons (being built along said moon's equator) won't just simulate conditions within nanoseconds of the Big Bang -- it'll ''set off'' another Big Bang. Because we now have the ability to annihilate not just ourselves, but possibly the entire universe, the main characters consider themselves under an ethical obligation to explore and perhaps force peace upon humanity through some AppliedPhlebotinum, because ''somebody's'' going to push that button someday. In fact, [[{{Cult}} somebody]] wants to.
