@akira86: Thanks for the report!

It seems python-selinux has been made a requirement for molecule's entry_point in 3.0.3 and I didn't notice that.
I will look into this later today!
For the time being you can either install molecule 3.0.2 or locally install (for your user only) selinux using pip: `pip3 install --user selinux`
