No, fast lenses enable you to restrict depth of field. And high ISO plus fast lens gives you the capabilty of working in lower light than high ISO plus slow lens.

Here is a picture of my black cat hiding in an unlit coal cellar, 60 seconds at f2. Imagine how much better it would have been had I had an f0.95 lens.

There are already 10 million poorly exposed pictures of cats on Instagram. So I don't think it's of any global benefit that you have a $1000 lens so you can make that 10 million and one poorly exposed pictures of cats.
