It was the strikers who opened fire first. They murdered a few Pinkertons, tried to burn alive those agents who attempted to surrender, and then after accepting the agents' surrender, proceeded to torture them.
Why not just have a per-site identity? In other words, tracking cookies become worthless because they can't follow you from site to site. And then within each site, allow multiple identities if desired (think private browsing, only data is retained if you desire it.)
People trying to legitimately defend their property from violent trespassers are not "thugs", except maybe to the deranged.

Not at all suprising that Wikipedia conspicuously fails to mention this.
You do not know the meaning of fascism. Instead, you're using the term as a mere epithet.
Fascists have a view of world history in which ethnic or national groups are primary. They have a Hobbesian theory of society and the State where the nation must be reified as an individual, where disagreement and competition must be forcibly suppressed. Economic ideology is corporatist: having nothing to do with business corporations, but rather a form of guild socialism - central planning, where market competition is suppressed by the State, and sectors of society and the economy, such as agriculture, business, labor, etc. are regimented into organizations under a single governing body and forced to negotiate with each other to establish policies in the interest of each organization and the body as a whole.
The sentence referring to Supreme Court rulings between 1876 and 1939 is a lie. In U.S. vs. Miller, for example, the court never questioned that the Second Amendment was an individual right, only whether or not a short-barrelled shotgun was an appropriate military weapon.
