In Kali Yuga,Â wealth alone will be considered the sign of a man's good birth,Â proper behaviour and fine qualities. Law and justice will be applied only on the basis of one's power.
Source:Â Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.2
vittam eva kalau nrnam
karanamÂ balam eva hi
The Bhagwad Gita says that means and women will live together on the basis of very superficial things like attraction towards each other,Â expertise in sex,Â and the power one holds. The success in a business will depend upon cheat and deceit.
Source:Â Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.3
dampatye 'bhirucir hetur
stritve pumstve ca hi ratir
vipratve sutram eva hi
Servants will abandon a master who has lost his wealth and a master will abandon a servant who although has showed his loyaltyÂ but is now of not much value. Cows would be slaughtered once they stop giving milk. This sheds light on the superficiality and cunning nature of human beings.
Source:Â Srimad Bhagavatam 12.3.36

In Kalyuga men will be ready to kill each other over wealth. Money will be the prime focus for everybody. The world will go around money. Compassion and goodness will take a backseat and power and wealth will dominate the spectrum.
Source:Â Srimad Bhagavatam 12.3.41
kalau kakinike 'py arthe
tyakshyanti ca priyan pranan
hanishyanti svakan api
Human beings will no longer protect their elders. They will be self-centred and think for themselves only. Elders will be ignored and uncared for.
Source: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.3.42
na rakshishyanti manujah

In the Kal Yuga the mortality of a person will reduce. A person will not be able to live longer than 50 years.
Source: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.2.11
trimsad vimsati varsani
paramayuhÂ kalau nrnam
The earth will become populated with corrupt people. Only those people who show themselves as above the social classes by showing political power will be able to emerge as the strongest. While greed and lust will always reign over goodness and virtue.
