It takes hard work and some initial investment,
but you are buying your true freedom.
Most of us are still indentured servants because of our lifestyles.
40+ hours a week (if we are 'lucky") just to stay on the treadmill and have some occasional vacations.
Permaculture breaks the work-consume cycle, and still allows us to live in the suburbs and even the cities. We can be in balance with the Earth, and still have luxurious lives. They aren't necessarily mutually exclusive.
And who wants to say no to highly-mineralized, organic, local produce? At basically no cost after time?
Permaculture is a HUGE part of the answer.
