In this lecture, Prabhupada speaks of how a group of thieves had stolen something and were dividing the spoils amongst themselves. He refers to how they were going to ‘morally divide’ their booty. Then he gave an example of the United Nations: ‘The association of the “honest men”. All plunderers, rogues, thieves and they have made association: United Nations.’

This also reminds me of a quote I gleaned from The Path Of Perfection: ‘A society of thieves cannot be happy, because they have no aim in life.’
