The parable, "Before the Law", by Frank Kafka relates to breaking the law and standing up in society. The piece highlights a man that is standing in front of a door. He wants to get in and on to the other side but is too scared to try getting pass the doorman. Because of this he waits his whole life complaining about getting through until he gets old and it is too late.
The point of the story is to show that sitting and doing nothing about something important to you can seem like a tragedy because you won't know what lies on the other side until you do something about it. "If you don't try nothing will change". Sometimes breaking a rule is the only way to create change that could be beneficial to a community. If you spend your life only wishing you had enough courage to "get through the door" that can seem tragic.
This relates to the story we read, Antigone. Although it was tragic for Kreon because of everyone who died, it could have been a tragedy for Antigone if she did not break the rules and bury her brother. She would have spent her whole life in guilt from not doing her part and standing up to society.
At the end of the story the doorkeeper says to the man, "No one else could ever be admitted here, since this gate was made only for you." This means that breaking laws or rules is exclusively up to you. Everyone has their own chance to make something better but they have to have the motivation and determination to change it.
