The LOPSIII Model and Ideology
Locally Owned, Profit-Sharing, Income Inequality Inhibitor
Welcome to LOPSIII.com, the only official source for all information about forming and maintaining a Locally Owned, Profit-Sharing, Income Inequality Inhibitor business, aka LOPSIII (easily pronounced: lop-see).
All of the information on this site is free! We believe that access to wealth should never be a barrier to basic financial literacy.
Use the LOPSIII Operating Agreement Formation Guidance to design the Operating Agreement for your business with the right framework for economically sustainable and ethically sound capitalism. The Formation Guidance is a general architecture that you can use and adapt to your own business in order to prioritize ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) principles and contribute healthy commercial behavior into the economy.
If you need a good place to start, try reading through the chapters of Capital Flow; after the Introduction, the sections go in no particular order and they all interrelate. Or, you could try selecting some books from the Reading Lists. One way or another, you are going to have to read more if you want to continue down this path. If you have already read your book for this decade, then we wish you well on your quest, and surely you know the way back to comfort and convenience. But for the rare few of you who are entirely unsatisfied with the way things are, with the way some people have been treated by capitalism-as-usual, and with your own personal level of financial and existential preparedness, and you actually have it within you to adopt a responsible, adult lifestyle of perpetual growth and adaptation in order to thrive in this ever-changing world, then please … make yourself at home. You don’t have to be a slave to the economic matrix of capitalism-as-usual, but it does take hard work to break free. It’s not easy, and no part or person in the system will help you to do it, by design. But that’s why you’re here, right? Because you know that you have it in you to become smarter than you were. How else were you planning to financially and economically free yourself? We believe that some of you have it within you to transcend the conditions that hold you back. Neglect not your local library. We would say good luck, but luck has nothing to do with it. See you on the other side!
The LOPSIII model and ideology were created by tkscm, limited—the first and original LOPSIII.
The United States has been historically prosperous for only a limited selection of its peoples, but it doesn’t have to continue to be that way. If we can collectively organize our business pursuits with both operational and financial consideration, we can build a more ethical and equitable commercial market that directly empowers those who have been marginalized (the Income Inequality Inhibitor [III] component of LOPSIII, via the Local Fund) and counteracts the real and devastating effects of inequality that have emerged from capitalism-as-usual. Local Fund distributions and grants are not a direct reparations payment from the government, but we at tkscm, limited believe that the LOPSIII model has powerful economic mechanisms that can reshape the landscape of wealth distribution, with larger effects in larger networks. The lure of capitalism-as-usual will always come with temptations of higher profits, but do not forget the costs; the economic inequality of the world around us is just one of the weights that we shoulder for accepting the behaviors of the capitalists, those who control the purse and policy strings, and “the way things have always been done.”
