Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam

If you were to ask any world leader whether he believed in 'Vaisudhaiva Kutumbakam', I am sure he won't bat an eyelid before answering in the affirmative. Yet they all pile arms for future use against other countries or against their own people at times. I have never come across, nor you would have had, a family where various members pile arms and ammunition for use against each other. Have we ever come across a family where some members feast and many others starve? Where food and food items are wasted when many members of the family go without food? Why should it happen on earth where every educated one will be saying yes to 'Vaisudhaiva Kutumbakam'?
