Not that weird and complicated, you just have to make the difference between the EU and EEA countries.

The EU is a confederation and EU citizenship has a legal existence since 1992, EU citizens can therefore move between EU states as freely as US citizens can move between US states.

EEA countries can be considered 'EU associates', even though they are not part of the EU, they enjoy free movement of persons with the EU. There's also a bilateral Swiss-EU agreement very similar to the EEA agreement.
