We must overthrow the phrase "vast majority."
People need slogans, but imperialist phrase "vast majority" has become reflexive--when comrade use word majority--whether majority 51 to 99 percent--comrade always toss in "vast." It like a reflex, and when slogan become reflex, no longer has meaning.
Majority mean 51 to 99 percent--that mean at least 48 adjectives to describe majority. Foster communication by careful selection of words, not inane use of adjective.
Please to be expunging phrase "vast majority" from vocab. It not help to speak doubleplusgood.
