nonsenses like "PAM is better/worse than SELinux" or "SELinux is
better/worse than PK". They are uncomparable as they do essentially
The main ideas behind all three systems.

Re: PolicyKit versus SELinux and PAM
SELinux. Let's say, its complimentary application-level access control
system... Not more. By the way it's pretty raw and still not normally
supported in KDE. When I faced problem of hardening my LFS I decided
that it would be more rational to configure LinuxPAM properly. By the
way I'm not sure polkit could work without PAM.
