Teams of people can accomplish more than individuals in great undertakings. A team of thieves can be organized. A command structure makes coordination flow more smoothly. Customs, mores and rules evolve. Thieves steal. It is good to steal if you are a thief. It is not good to disrupt the team..the group...the family by stealing from each other. "We must be able to trust each other in order to be maximally effective."

The rule becomes "we must treat the insiders, the other thieves with honor." The meaning of "honor among thieves" is the idea that lying thieving bastards can trust each other.
