Yeah, the Ironborn are so stupid. They remind me of a bunch of pirates...surprised that Jack Sparrow hasn't turned up with those idiots. Several POV characters have already said that the Ironborn have no loyalty and no organization, so losing Balon's Rebellion was really no surprise.
The Wildlings aren't dumb persay, they're just more in tune with nature/spirits like Native Americans. They're not modern like those who live south of the Wall but they're certainly not as stupid as the Ironborn.
