"I have known Christian Pierre Joubert (the son of two World War II German labor camp survivors) since our college days, during his studies in Political Science at the Univ. of Massachusetts, and mine at Northeastern Univ. School of Law in Boston. From that date on, I have observed him emerse himself in a never-ending stream of education and enlightenment, sometimes avidly attending formal classes, and often by vehement research, clinical investigation and self-education. I have explored and discussed with him his astonishing ideas and knowledge in an incredible variety of disciplines: constitutional and human rights, international law (which he taught in Paris and at a Spokane law school), comparative religions (Judaism/Christianity/Buddhism/Taoism, etc.), enviromental protection (including alternative housing/energy/sustainability, etc.), accupuncture, naturopathy (natural medicine) and holistic health, oncology and how nutrition can affect cancer, and so on. Amazing even to experienced senior trial attorneys, Christian acted as his own attorney in extensive trial and appellate litigation against a major tobacco company as a means of exploring the criminalization of the industrial-processed-tobacco business that has resulted in the death of so many Americans. Similarly, Christian brought and tried himself, an extensive law suit vs. hospital and doctors over malpractice and his attempt to establish alternative medicine as an additional standard of care for cancer patients. He provided invaluable holistic-medicine information and resources even to a variety of cancer victims I knew personally. Christian also built and operated a holistic health/healing center for 5+ years in Europe, where cancer victims came for naturopathic healing and information; and from which he organized and ran numerous holistic health workshops including a symposium on "Cancer, Alternative Medicine and the Law". He was invited to, and did speak in 2005 on "how to argue cancer alternative medicine in the courtroom" to a symposium of The Cancer Control Society of Los Angeles (a large consortium of oncologists and cancer patients).
Christian has traveled extensively in his lifelong search for knowledge and understanding of the condition and plight of working people. He traveled to Germany, Switzerland, France, Spain, Holland, England, Italy, Israel, and Africa. Christian has written an appelate argument before the Washington State Supreme Court, about the need for greater access to justice for low and middle-income citizens, arguing that the failure to provide such lower income persons with adequate access to the civil legal system, deprives them of constitutional rights in our country. He investigated an unfair labor situation in an American university, and authored an extensive and skilled brief to the National Labor Relations Board, in furtherance of protection of the workers at that University. If you have gotten the feeling that Mr. Joubert is an extraordinary. multiply-skilled, bright, creative, incredbily-energetic and extremely moral and humane individual, then you are at least beginning to understand the fabulous array of positive qualities he brings to every endeavor. I feel that the citizens of any community would be extraordinarily served by any efforts he made on their behalf." .If you have gotten the feeling that Mr. Joubert is an extraordinary, multiply-skilled, bright, creative, incredbily-energetic and extremely moral and humane individual, then you are at least beginning to understand the fabulous array of positive qualities he brings to every endeavor.
