Seeing beyond privacy

Privacy is a thing of the past, so says many. We need strategies to understand and philosophize this phenomenon that has begun with or without us.
While the dam was getting built, men worked side by side every day in elements that were harsh and "unreal." They endured with a kind of camaraderie the way soldiers depend on one another. This is common in many jobs, the "looking after" of other employees, the celebrating small victories on the job together. Privacy then is not an issue but rather privacy is shared.
Can we share with others what we feel might help ourselves/help others? Absolutely.
As the dam got did the workers. As technology increases the capacity for "sharing" too our capacity for seeing beyond "privacy".
