You can be blue-pilled purely from userspace, which "Secure" Boot does not 
protect at all. Ever heard of software emulation? It doesn't even need root 
access! It's several times slower (~50 times in my experience of running 
qemu-system-x86_64 on a 32-bit P4 to build packages), but some users are 
happily using spyware/virus/trojan-infected machines slowed down to a crawl.
