11 Throughout Haushofer’s work, we find the mystifying leitmotif of an agriculture linking the people to their Volksboden and functioning as a form of collective defense against surging modernism, in the shape of a mechanized world. He denounces industry as culture’s fall from grace, as a way of life forced on the Germans from the outside: from “strangers to the national self,” the Volkstum. ”12 This argument involves a classic neo-Malthusian inversion; postulating a precapitalist agrarian relation between population and agricultural growth based on the assumption of absolute natural limits, it ascribes such limits to society and to the possibilities for social productivity.

Reflecting this reaction, defiant metaphors of immutability opposed capitalism’s intangible reality: a reality that had torn apart and discarded the traditional social fabric, granting prerogative to the urban way of life over that of the countryside, to industrial over agricultural rhythms—in short, privileging abstract over concrete forms of social intercourse. Crucially, the immutability proclaimed its biological foundation. In this manner, it rejected the ever greater institutional formalization, the suppression of forms of legitimacy based on family and lineage and the accompanying inherited loyalty, the growing amount of functional signification and, above all, its theoretical foundation in sociology, political science, and positivist legal theory—all were innovations alien in their very essence and stood against the putatively organic nature of societal relations.

It stands in close proximity to other approaches of the time that were virulently narrow in their national and imperial interests. These approaches shared a propensity to balance off imperial realms against one another. The degree of ethnocentricism involved here runs parallel to a second propensity: the justification of a selfish ordering of outwardly directed political claims through a nationalistically amputated international law. Such a perspective defines Haushofer’s geopolitics as a “German discipline”—along with many other contemporary foundational efforts in the sciences and humanities.
