Why do they think it's so easy to simply move to another country?

It's just a childish response. A young child's first response at being corrected is often to threaten to "run away from home".

Life has been too easy here. Because of that we have far too many young adults who have never been challenged while growing up to improve themselves or their behavior in any way.

They were told repeatedly in the public schools that they are "special and unique". Yet they look around and see that this is obviously not true. So they have to mask that dissonance by getting a snake tattoo across their face or have a dozen different facial piercings.

It never occurs to them that unique and special isn't necessarily useful in any way.
