I don't think that I or the members of any society would be safer with facial recognition. I'm not sure if you read the article/we interpreted what was written the same way, because I think the author addressed the point he feels is being missed. I don't think that the author was arguing that anyone is safer with facial recognition. I think that they did correctly point out that banning facial recognition is really only addressing a symptom rather than a cause of the problem, which is the increasing ubiquity of mass surveillance, and the 'data broker industry' that comes with that. I think the last paragraph illustrates the point.

Today, facial recognition technologies are receiving the brunt of the tech backlash, but focusing on them misses the point. We need to have a serious conversation about all the technologies of identification, correlation and discrimination, and decide how much we as a society want to be spied on by governments and corporations — and what sorts of influence we want them to have over our lives.

Of course I don't want to be spied on by corporations or by the government period. But I do think the author is right that we as a society, or in this case specifically the USA does need to change its laissez faire attitude towards these issues.
