Vote with your wallet, don't buy a device with a locked bootloader.
A device with a locked bootloader, only serves to sell the services of the company that produces it. Amazon has root permissions on that device with the platform key and the owner does not have root. Sooner or later, Amazon can do whatever he wants if the device continues to be blocked. In Europe a locked device in this way is illegal because it violates privacy laws ( the device contain your personal data, and without root you can't check if are stolen ) and because it creates a monopoly at the expense of other enterprises.
They are transforming Linux in a Walled Garden, after many sacrifices and hard work of the promoters and inventors of the open source.
I'm not against the sale of applications and services, but you can not force the choice with these illegal methods.
We must not just fight with exploits, but you have to denounce such behavior to the appropriate governative authorities.
Only the union is strength against these multi million dollar companies that for their economic interests are ruining the world of computing.
