The first rule of security:
If a "black hat" has physical access to your system, your system is insecure.

The second rule of security:
If a "black hat" has access to your system's firmware, your system is insecure.

A manufacturer of secure devices will require that firmware updates be signed by the manufacturer, and design their devices so that they will only load properly-signed firmware updates.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
