so apparently is it more disturbing to hear about someone being disturbed by having to (under corporate duress) watch someone be violently murdered... than it is to (by my own choosing) watch someone be violently murdered

I didn't make it too far into that article :-/

Interesting it's common for them to start believing in the conspiracy theories they are moderating.

The Government Is Using the Most Vulnerable People to Test Facial Recognition Software

Our research shows that any one of us might end up helping the facial recognition industry, perhaps during moments of extraordinary vulnerability.
If you thought IBM using “quietly scraped” Flickr images to train facial recognition systems was bad, it gets worse. Our research, which will be reviewed for publication this summer, indicates that the U.S. government, researchers, and corporations have used images of immigrants, abused children, and dead people to test their facial recognition systems, all without consent. The very group the U.S. government has tasked with regulating the facial recognition industry is perhaps the worst offender when it comes to using images sourced without the knowledge of the people in the photographs.
