What should Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin do? Let’s ask Jesus.

Jesus always treated everyone nicely when leading international conferences between nuclear powers. His reflections on economic theory form the foundations of both free market and command economies to this day. He was always nice to everybody. This was appreciated so much that they crucified him for it.

Joe Biden should not, I repeat NOT, kick Vladimir Putin in the shins and make disparaging comments about his mother. He should smile and be as nicely nice to him as possible. That’s what Jesus would do.

The lesson is that we should be nicely nice to each other to make things nicier in the world.
