We really need this, especially since it was discovered that all intel processors have a built-in backdoor, a mini-computer inside the CPU that can be accessed externally at any point is a computer designed to be unsafe. Intel should go out of business for this, but of course they won't because of all the government subsidies, who benefit from all these spy chips

Absolutely. An open source hardware with some sort of documented or audit-able security so that the end user has control of their own hardware would be a boon.
The Intel Management Engine is one backdoor "where only the manufacturer" has the cryptographic keys to access.
AMD processors also have Critical Security Vulnerabilities
