Well, in an (perhaps fruitless) attempt to keep this on-topic with the "Computers, Math, Science, and Technology" forum, I vote for biological weapons.

They have little or no operational or tactical military use, so they just end up being a terrorist's wet dream.

(And yes, many biological weapons weren't invented by humans).

This. Also fossil fuels, the voting system in America right now, and the No Child Left Behind Program.

And shooting The Hobbit in 48 FPS.

War.

Lots and lots of 'ocracies (also totalitarianism, fascism, monarchy, etc.).

The Prohibition (I mean really it wasn't that bad--I'm neutral on the thing itself--but it prevented us from switching to alcohol for cars which is way cleaner).

Nukes.

Auto-tune - the source of the never-ending demonization of the music industry.

Awful music - Hip hop, Garage, Rap, Bubblegum, Teen pop, Dub-step, Boy/Girl bands.

SMS Language - responsible for grammatical incoherence and atrocity of spelling.

Social Networking: Facebook/Twitter/Bebo.

Marxism

Scientology

Emergence of negative sub-cultures (chav’s, juvenile and non-educated delinquents, teenyboppers).

Artificial Sweeteners (especially Aspartame, Donald Rumsfeld's bio-weapon in order to deceive and dumb down society).

Sodium Fluoride - Although it helps prevent tooth decay, it can inherently degenerate your brain.

Hershey’s chocolate

Processed foods

Monosodium glutamate (MSG)

GM Foods

High Fructose Corn Syrup

Toxic chemicals

Reality T.V.

Orange/Fake Tans

Asbestos

Flu Vaccine

Calculators - making people more dependent on mathematical help.

But, popcorn is nothing without butter! And the human population would spiral out of control even faster if we didn't constantly kill each other with guns.

The number of people killed by guns, even in wartime, is too microcopically small to actually effect population growth.

I would modify that to say organized religion. Private religious attitudes are inevitable. Humans will cook up some sort of scheme in which to place their experiences. It cannot be prevented. The best we can hope for is that people will keep their private relgions to themselves or at least confine them to their homes and not inflict them on the public.
