Big Society, Big Schmociety or Big Scam?

I would love to get people's views on whether the UK government's latest initiative is truly going to benefit "society" - once again, terminology which, consciously or unconsciously, takes the individual out of the equation.

Here are a couple of relevant links from the BBC

To start the ball rolling, personally I think it's obscene to ask one section of society to work for nothing, replacing many skilled and qualified people whilst there are still spotty 19 year olds earning squillions, pressing a button to move virtual cash around. We're all in it together, David...NOT!
