Privacy Commons?

As privacy online is an issue dear to me, I like to read from DuckDuckGo, Proton, Signal and various other tools on how to enhance your defenses. This piece on TechCrunch had an interesting angle. It debated if privacy would be a private matter, or a matter of the coPrivacy is a commonsmmons. On it being a private matter:

“The answer is: no, actually, not necessarily; not if there are enough of them; not if the commodification of privacy begins to affect us all. Privacy is like voting. An individual’s privacy, like an individual’s vote, is usually largely irrelevant to anyone but themselves … but the accumulation of individual privacy or lack thereof, like the accumulation of individual votes, is enormously consequential.” - TechCrunch “Privacy is a commons”

Also considering that the Conmons is a central theme in the upcoming Odyssey Hackathon here in the Netherlands, I can see this theme being applied a lot broader in an attempt to make the world a fairer place again.
