A brilliant young man, he was appointed professor at the University of Basel aged 24 having not even finished his degree. His evanescent philosophical life ended 20 years later when he went insane and died shortly afterwards.

Nietzsche’s argued that the Christian system of faith and worship was not only incorrect, but harmful to society because it allowed the weak to rule the strong – it suppressed the will to power which was the driving force of human character. Nietzsche wanted people to throw of the shackles of our misguided Christian morality and become supermen – free and titanic.

However, without God he felt that the future of man might spiral into a society of nihilism, devoid of any meaning; his aim was for man to realise the lack of divine purpose and create his own values. The core of Nietzsche’s work, including Thus Spake Zarathustra (1883-92), Beyond Good and Evil (1886), The Birth of Tragedy (1872) was to find a meaning and morality in the absence of God.

The Di­a­mond Em­pire tells the sto­ry of a pow­er­ful car­tel set up to keep di­a­monds rare and cost­ly af­ter they were found in large num­bers in south­ern Africa; a car­tel that one fam­i­ly, the Op­pen­heimers, now have un­der their con­trol. It shows how the di­a­mond in­dus­try sup­plied vi­tal in­dus­tri­al di­a­monds to both sides dur­ing the Sec­ond World War, while at the same time launch­ing the ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paign that made a di­a­mond ring a pre­req­ui­site for ev­ery bride. It shows how di­a­monds con­tin­ue to be used to fund wars through­out Africa and to be cut for mere pennies by chil­dren in In­dia for the US mar­ket.
