Perfect Solution Fallacy

The perfect solution fallacy is a related informal fallacy that occurs when an argument assumes that a perfect solution exists or that a solution should be rejected because some part of the problem would still exist after it were implemented.

Solution: The way out of the perfect solution fallacy is to reframe the problem and focus on the benefits of marginal improvements. Emphasize that just because we are opting for a partial solution, it does not follow that we have given up on continued improvements in the future.
