First, he served in the Coast Guard, where he rose to the rank of lieutenant commander. He married, had a family, and devoted himself utterly to his two little girls. After he got out of the military, he worked as a moderator for Facebook, where he purged the social network of the worst stuff that its users post on a daily basis: the hate speech, the murders, the child pornography. Utley worked the overnight shift at a Facebook content moderation site in Tampa, FL, operated by a professional services vendor named Cognizant.

Le Guin short story called “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas,” about a fantasy city called Omelas, a joyous metropolis without guilt or violence, populated by “mature, intelligent, passionate” people who celebrate beautiful festivals and shop at (duh) a “magnificent Farmer’s Market.” Le Guin is short on political or organizational specifics; Omelas is whatever utopia you can conjure up for yourself, with one extra feature: Somewhere in the city, in a grimy basement underneath a handsome building, a 10-year-old child, “feeble-minded,” terrified, and starved, has been imprisoned, begging desperately to be set free.

The people of Omelas are aware of the prisoner. Your Speech, Their Rules: Meet the People Who Guard the Internet. Alex Feerst: Tell me about your day-to-day.

And it talked about a group of work­ers in rur­al Iowa in the United States, in the Midwest, in an area that had been tra­di­tion­al­ly a fam­i­ly farm area.
