"Capitalism is based on information and knowledge, not greed"

Really? Then someone please inform the capitalists.

So when, for example, a large multinational executes workers demanding better pay and conditions in third world country factories, it's all about information and knowledge.

Mainly, the knowledge that killing those guys will send a message to the rest of the workers, and keep the factory costs down.

Just an example. There are million others, from lobbying and having special laws made for them in western countries, to setting up governments of people they approve and taking down governments they don't like in so called "Banana republics".
