  Defining “Enemy of the state”   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-16)
Since the states are the people, and are used interchangeably as such, then one could presume that this is the case; that is, that the meanings of being the people with commonalities, or as the people in a given geographic area acting in common.
I assure you that anytime a government mouthpiece, whether an elected or appointed official, or a hired agent of the STATE (cops, for example), speaks of “enemies of the state”, he refers to those being the enemy of the traitorous government he is part of.
Therefore, it is my contention that the true enemies of the state are the very government entities and their agencies that should be constitutionally created to protect the people, who are by definition the state.

Enemy of the State is Tony Scott's directorial take on a screenplay written by David Marconi, with the thesis that "It's Not Paranoia If They're Really After You."

 Our Enemy, the State by Albert Jay Nock
When the State intervenes to fix wages or prices, or to prescribe the conditions of competition, it virtually tells the enterpriser that he is not exercising social power in the right way, and therefore it proposes to confiscate his power and exercise it according to the State's own judgment of what is best.
IN CONSIDERING the State's development in America, it is important to keep in mind the fact that America's experience of the State was longer during the colonial period than during the period of American independence; the period 1607-1776 was longer than the period 1776-1935.
Bearing in mind that the State is the organization of the political means – that its primary intention is to enable the economic exploitation of one class by another – we see that it has always acted on the principle already cited, that expropriation must precede exploitation.

 OUR ENEMY THE STATE
By contrast, writes Nock, "the state" represents a corruption of democracy in which special interests use the coercive power of government in order to extract concessions and advantages not available to other citizens.
Ultimately, "the state" becomes an instrument of oppression, allowing those special interests to compel the rest of society to behave in ways they would not otherwise do.
The State has economic advantage to dispense, and there are pressure groups, factions, and individuals organized to take advantage of the give-aways.

 Filmtracks: Enemy of the State (Rabin/Gregson-Williams)
Enemy of the State: (Trevor Rabin and Harry Gregson-Williams) The techno-thriller Enemy of the State is widely considered a stereotypical Tony Scott/Jerry Bruckheimer testosterone-laced chase flick, hailed as an above-average entry in an ever-growing list of films that seems to be weighed down on the latter end by disappointing flops.
While Enemy of the State is a chase story, it is better remembered as a snapshot of government technology in the late 1990's, whether real or imagined, and it is along these technological lines that Scott and Bruckheimer's usual composer, Hans Zimmer, could have had a field day.
There has been speculation that the roles in Enemy of the State followed similar boundaries as had been established in Armageddon, the blockbuster score for which the two same composers collaborated earlier in the year.

Either (a) Hannity is convinced that he is, in fact, "the State," (b) or he is officially acknowledging that he is a lacky of "the State," as defined by this administration.
Then the unauthorized invocation of 'the state' is supposed to reinforce the subject's notion that the state smites 'malcontents' in his name.
Certainly, "Enemy of the State" is a presumptuous title, but Hannity didn't seem to be involved enough to take any pot shots at Sean Penn for his marriage to Madonna, on-set temper tantrums, or time in jail.

 The Claremont Institute » For the Study of Statesmanship and Political Philosophy
By urging the expansion of government's role in the economy and society, they facilitated the transformation of the regime from a constitutional or limited government into a modern administrative state, in which the power of government cannot be limited because the social problems it will be called on to solve are unlimited.
The quarrels between the defenders and opponents of the modern state have attained the status of religious disputation.
For that reason, she notes, "generations of young people have been systematically stripped of the intellectual tools that would enable them to defend the institutions crafted by the Framers of our Constitution." Nor is she sanguine about the possibility of reversing the growing dependency upon government.
