For sadly, urbanized as it is, wherever it gains a position of power, the nation of Israel lays waste the natural landscape—with rare exceptions. Marx was such a notorious shut-in, estranged from both air and soil! 22 We find other anti-Semitic observations scattered throughout a rich range of Haushofer’s writings, both private and public. 25 Despite his partial sympathy for the Bolsheviks—a sympathy grounded in his geopolitical premises—he appraises Soviet leaders of Jewish origin in a pejorative manner.
95 Haushofer makes it clear that the concept of geopolitical Raum does not correspond to that of the modern, territorial state, grounded in a more abstract understanding of nationality and region. In contrast, Raum reflects a concept of Reich that preceded the nation-state’s onset. Consequently, the fact that German identity took on state form only at a comparatively late historical moment, with a large number of ethnic Germans thus living outside the state’s legal territory— outside its “state soil” (Staatsboden) and “Reich soil” (Reichsboden) 96 —represent a fundamental conflict of political historical vision.
50 Later Haushofer would see Germany fail to endure, in a military struggle he defined as fateful, as dominant continental power or— corresponding to his earlier notion—to form a “continental block” with Russia and Japan and defy the maritime strength of the Anglo-Saxons. ” 51 In harmony with his geopolitical schema, Haushofer correctly assumed that a parallel process would unfold in the United States and the Soviet Union: [The Americans would appropriate a] more or less broad strip of the European western and southern coasts, thus fulfilling Cecil Rhodes’s ideal of opposite coasts.
