So why aren't you using Gentoo, where you get to customise and optimise everything? Why aren't you using text modes and avoiding the bloat of graphics? Do you even know when you're being tacitly saved from confusion and hassle - or, in the case of SELinux, from actual bugs - by things 'just working' because of this "infective" bloat?
Sadly, it would seem you're too busy using pejoratives.
