I'm not sure why you are comparing the functions of SELinux with the
functions of a firewall.  It would be nice to hear your interpretation of
the issues that SELinux targets v.s. what a Firewall targets.  If you think
they serve the same functions it would be nice if you would cite your source.

Umm, I think they have very little in common, myself, except
in some sort of vague overall "enhanced security" sense.

The firewall intends to prevent compromise.
SELinux intends to mitigate damage on a compromised machine.

Note that I speak of intent, not what is accomplished.

Oppose globalization and One World Governments like the UN.

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
