I am going to make the assumption that you are referring to Antigone's outward defiance of Creon's law about not honoring the dead.  Creon is surprised at Antigone's outward defiance and cannot comprehend why should be so willing and openly resitant to an edict or law that has been passed.  His reaction represents the fundamental rift between the Status Quo and the forces that seek to question to it.  On some level, all institutional powers cannot initially understand why resistance is present.  Any political dynamic includes that lack of comprehension that Creon displays to Antigone's defiance.  At its root is the belief that justice can be seen as operating with the law and outside of it.
