The atom-bomb approach is to change everything
in /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/ to <allow_active>no</allow_active> and
<allow_inactive>no</allow_inactive>.

But that's not right because those files aren't config files.  Instead,
you drop "local authority" files in /var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/
that override those permissions on a site-by-site basis for your
specific use-case, irregardless of what the defaults are.
