    You say this:

    I think learning other languages, appreciating other cultures, and living abroad are gifts, mainly to those who are pretty well off.  
    ...followed by this:
    I am proud that I have worn out a few passports and have lived abroad.
    So then, should I deduce that you are well off? Were you born into it? If so, congratulations, but perhaps that colors your perspective, due to the ease with which you are able to live. I don't doubt you might have earned it from your own merit and effort, by the way.

    I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires. - Susan B. Anthony

      What destinations do you propose that will offer not "well-off" Americans remunerative positions and ease of immigration?

      Why would they?  What is in their national self-interest to dos?  Most nations outside of Europe are not progressive and liberal.

      Many if not most, have highly conservative religious populations to boot.

      Cheers.
