However, in practice, everything did not look so straightforward. The purely scientific geopolitical logic of Haushofer, which logically led to the need for a “continental bloc” with Moscow, was confronted with numerous tendencies of a different nature, also inherent in German national consciousness. It was a purely racist approach to history, which Hitler himself was infected with. This approach considered racial proximity as the most important factor, and not geographical or geopolitical specificity. In this case, the Anglo-Saxon peoples of England and the USA were seen as natural allies of the Germans, since they were ethnically closest to them. The Slavs, and especially the non-white Eurasian peoples, turned into racial opponents. To this was added ideological anti-communism, implicated in many respects on the same racial principle, Marx and many communists were Jews, which meansin the eyes of anti-Semites, communism itself is an anti-German ideology.
