Our interaction with violent sociopaths twisted us, as we absorbed the fanaticism of Artix and galanoth in our zealous hunt for our vision of the world.
Violent Artix may be with the undead, but he is far from a sociopath. Remember, Artix can actually hear the thoughts of the undead thanks to his contact with the Darkness orb, and they hate being undead. Artix is doing the only thing he can when he slays them, send them back to death's realm where they both belong, and desire to return to. And Galanoth isn't one either, as he actually had the dragonslayer order team up with the DragonLords to prevent the Rose from hunting dragons to extinction. Galanoth and his order doesn't slay just any dragons after all, just the evil ones(which, unfortunately, had a bad tendency to outnumber the good ones).
Why did we not recognise cinquefoil as robina? Because we forgot that portion of existence.
No, we're just.... not the sharpest lightbulb in the crayon box. We never have been. You have to remember, even way back in Book 1, Gary of all people was able to outwit us.
As for what Starflame posted, remember, this is Falconreach's beach they're on. It's not just dictatorships that would have you attack what may be a hostile invasion to your own territory to defend said territory. Almost any civilization would do that.
Besides, it's been hinted at both in-game and out-of-game, that there is most definitely something much deeper to this than "a bunch of undead wanting to have fun".
