Default Mandatory Access Control

Does anyone understand MAC? I've been reading the handbook article on it:

but I still don't really understand it. I understand what most of the various modules do but I don't understand what the advantages of using MAC are over simple file permissions. The most confusing to me is the multi-level security module - - I just don't get it.

Can someone provide a 'MAC for dummies' type explanation?
