    Worst?

    Makeup, high heels, dresses, blouses, tampons, perfume, power brakes, power steering, and a few other things...

    Smart phone by far. It's ruined society. Women especially have access to men on the other side of the world to them let alone outside of their communities.

    Even if the internet was what it is today but required a laptop or PC to use it wouldn't be so bad.

    I'm lucky I was a teenager in the Nokia 5110 era.

    You may as well include mechanical brakes, hard rubber tires and wooden spokes!

    Social media.
    It's a man's world and we need to take it by the throat and make it give us what we desire.

    Oral contraceptives?

    Really, the history of technology is just a concretization of a sublimated male sexual urge. Essentially, it is ideologies that have to be considered as the worst 'invention'. If we hold that Friedenist Feminism came from female suffrage, we should understand and accept that wahmenz were given the vote by men seeking to curry favor with the vagina kin.

    Agree with social media: specifically Twitter and Instagram. Both are pretty much pointless and engineered to be incredibly addictive. Twitter because it appeals to peoples most base instincts: 95% of it is just people banding together and yelling abuse at each other or jumping on the latest outrage bandwagon. Similarly Instagram basically only exists for people to flex and make people jealous and for women to inflate their SMV (which is how we end up with 4/5s thinking they're 9/10s).

    All in all countless lifetimes of human existence wasted on just these two apps combined.

    Are ideologies considered inventions? If so I'd say Socialism/Communism.

    It has to be the smartphone. Part of my job I train people. Before the widespread ownership of smartphones the people in my class room would be talking to each other before classes, during breaks, at the end etc but one day I returned late from lunch break and entered the class room knowing that everyone would already be there waiting for me - some 25 - 30 people. As I entered the room everyone was sat there in silence, every single person with their face buried in the phone. I stood at the front of the class and realised the power those bastard things hold. Nobody noticed I had returned and nobody looked up as I stood at the front until I spoke.

    I am not saying that I hadnt noticed how much people had their faces glued to their phones before that point. But it took that later return to my class i was training that I noticed how powerful they were.

    I still train staff and see this almost every time now.

    If nature intended for us to have smart phones, she would have installed a strap hinge on our necks so our heads would fold comfortably down.

    Wait and watch what smart phone junkies look like after 3 million hours of their chins touching their chests! I see a generation of vulture necks in the making!

    Social Media.

    Before the advent of Internet and the relevance of global events, say 3 decades ago, life was much easier: your problems and worries were justifiably local. Peace of mind was the name of the game.

    The pace at which life was changing was slow enough for just about anyone to accommodate to, and you literally had no worry other than studying hard and getting a job.

    But after the advent of social media, the Internet and contemporary society, the world has gotten un-needingly more complicated: we got stuck with a mindset of having to digitalize and technologize everything. Technology is seeking to replace things it should never ever touch: how humans interact. Our self esteems also plummeted, because our expectations of genes, beauty and intelligence are derived from the 1% who we see on the Internet and only on the Internet. I will stress this again: back before globalization, your high school bully was probably the only person who you thought about when you think about strength, or and you only thought about your high school crush if you thought about beauty, etc. Now, we all associate the 1% gifted people on the world with every attribute and that is very bad. We can see this on dating apps where women have unrealistic and unattainable expectations of who to date etc.

    Television by a long shot.

    Itīs impossible to have both democracy and mass communication. You must choose one or another.

    Social media for sure. I have nothing against technological advances but sites like facebook are disturbing.
