This chapter addresses the question of whether a society should banish or not. It explores the possible alternatives to banishment and stresses the need to decrease the economic and social inequality that supports the present urban crisis. This chapter also shows that banishment mostly works to expand the criminal justice system and decrease both the rights bearing capacity and life circumstances of those who are targeted for banishment.

Keywords:   alternatives, economic inequality, social inequality, urban crisis, criminal justice system, rights bearing capacity, life circumstances
