Don’t do -Rsc.

The difference is that -c is cascade mode:

From the man page:

-c, --cascade
           Remove all target packages, as well as all packages that depend on one or more target packages. This operation is recursive and must be used with care, since it can remove many potentially needed packages.

This option has been known to take out entire desktop environments and other critical system components.
