Srimad Bhagvata Mahapurana: Book 12: Chapter 1: Verses 40-43

These kings, 0 Pariksit, who will (all) be contemporaries, will be no better than Mlecchas (in their course of conduct) and will be given over to unrighteousness and mendacity, illiberal and furious. They will kill women, children, cows and Brahmans, covet-others` wives and wealth, experience vicissitudes of fortune in quick succession and will be poor of strength and courage and shortlived (too). They will cease to perform purificatory rites, will be devoid of righteous actions, and dominated by Rajas and Tamas and, being Mlecchas in the garb of Ksatriyas, will suck the blood of their (own) people. The people ruled over by them too will acquire their habits, ways of life and mode of speech and, oppressed by one another as well as by their rulers, will go to ruin.

Thus ends the first discourse in Book Twelve of the great and glorious

Bhagavata-Purana, otherwise known as the Paramahamsa-Samhita.
