Oh don't worry, that's been fixed. The Intel Management Engine and AMD PSP will ensure that despite what you try to run open source, a copy of the key or direct keyboard input is taken from underneath the kernel and sent to the authorities (think some kind of unblockable multicast or HTTPs via DoH to some master provider that won't let you online if you're not talking to it).

That's what years of just chasing the cheapest thing without caring about whether you actually have control of it or not will do. Welcome to 1984, comrade!
