Use of the words “stone age,” “primitive” and “savage” has been labeled unacceptable by the UK’s Association of Social Anthropologists, according to the BBC. These professors are backing a campaign by an advocacy group named Survival that claims the terms peg living tribal and indigenous people as “backward” and damage their welfare.

Unfortunately, you don’t hear the ASA word police sticking up for private property rights, free enterprise, rule by law, and defense against tyranny — a campaign that might actually do tribal peoples some good.
