Srimad Bhagavatam 12.03.37-38 - Family Members are Valuable (download mp3)
by Nanda Dulal Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty
dīnāḥ straiṇāḥ kalau narāḥ
In Kali-yuga men will be wretched and controlled by women. They will reject their fathers, brothers, other relatives and friends and will instead associate with the sisters and brothers of their wives. Thus their conception of friendship will be based exclusively on sexual ties.

Uncultured men will accept charity on behalf of the Lord and will earn their livelihood by making a show of austerity and wearing a mendicant’s dress. Those who know nothing about religion will mount a high seat and presume to speak on religious principles.
The epidemic of bogus gurus, swamis, priests and so forth is explicitly described here.
