NGO's, Military, Social Networks, and Civilian Roles in Conflict Resolution

Kony2012 brought up a lot of discussion on the role of the military in international peacebuilding. "Complex Peace Operations and Civil-Military Relations" ow.ly/9En7i discusses civil-military roles in reducing conflicts, while "Peacebuilding and NGOs" ow.ly/9EnZv examines the roles NGOs and State-civil society interactions play in reducing conflict.
"Social Capital and Peace-Building" http://ow.ly/9EuaC examines the impact of social capital in both inciting violence and in reducing conflict.

“These Royal Institution Christmas lectures provide the strongest counter-example I know to the conceit that research ideas are too difficult to explain to and too abstruse to excite the general public. Most of us just don’t work hard enough at it.”

What do your think?
As I edit my own article for publication (*ahem* not that it's due tomorrow or anything), I find myself with a question: is it now acceptable to submit scholarly articles whose titles and texts contain cuss words? The Fall 2011 issue of Western Humanities Review contains an article titled "The Humanities, RCM, and Bullshit"; its thesis seems to be that Responsibility Centered Management (be that what it is) is, well, a bunch of bullshit. The cheeky, screed-like tone and clearly subjective writing style ('bullshit' and its synonyms make several appearances throughout) make this article sound more like it belongs in a blog than in a professional publication - but maybe the lines there have been blurred now and I just never caught on.

Alternately, is this also an example of "fast-food scholarship"? Curious...

"...rape is not a random unpremeditated act but a form of violence by the powerful on those who are powerless, poor and disadvantaged"
Alka Kurian, 'Feminism and the Developing World', in 'Routledge Companion to Feminism and Post-Feminism', 2006

Rape is not a sexual offence, it is a hate crime.
