Let's Talk: Why Do We Hate Modern Classical Music?

I believe that the reason why Modern Classical Music is not welcomed is due to the fact that we lack education in our own culture. I would like to see the same amount of attention $$$$$ that is given to popular music(promoted heavily in our mass media)to be given to Modern Classical Music. This is just one reason why I think no attention is given to Modern Classical Music.( in order for you to realize that such genre exist, you will bump in to it as a mere accident). Classical Music is being commercialized more, you hear the fifth of beethoven on Kellogg's commercials, You hear Mozart's Mass in C- in bubble gum commercials, sure, if it sells why not, after all, is all about the money making machine.. how can we like something , when we have no knowledge about it? @Tom Fudge,I don't think the issue is on a personal level, "So Alex... I'm sorry I don't like Schoenberg, but some folks just don't catch on. Get used to it." its a bit deeper then then just that. .
