Barn door: horse. The technology is out there, and it is going to be used, regardless of whether the public knows and/or approves. There are (will be) too many benefits (existing or as yet-to-be-imagined) for the technology to stay dark for long (with or without a government ban). We already unlock phones and computers with facial recognition - there is a short step to all kinds of "convenience" applications (door locks, airline security, and let's not forget shopping).

Plus, facial recognition is not the only way to track a human (mobile phone, credit cards, license plates). If nothing else, it is a tool in an ever-growing toolbox that continuously records your digital (and physical) footprint in the world.
