I think humanitarianism
Once we realized that all those indigenous heathens were wallowing in filth and evil, it was a great turn for humanity that we allowed them to accept Jesus and capitalism.

Surely there is no single idea which has been more "useful" than others -- I guess there's no way to measure the usefulness of an idea. And does "enlightenment" here refer to the particular period called (rather strangely, in my opinion!) The Enlightenment? If so, I dip out here, because I don't know which ideas particularly emanate from it. If not ...
a glib answer would be "the invention of the wheel" -- very useful. Another, more recent, possibility is the digital computer. What do you think? That's more important than someone else's answer.
