Why do people hate mathematics?

Another great video from Numberphile to share with you.  Prof Frenkel talks about how Amazon knows what books to recommend to you, mathematical models influencing Wall Street, how mathematics is essential to the function of our democracy, why we need to know and appreciate the power of mathematics, why we should be aware of the great masterpieces of mathematicians, how everything is based on mathematics...and why most people hate mathematics...
