Banishment is a punishment that used to be used a lot but it is not used as much anymore. But many people believe that banishment is coming back as a punishment, it will be served by circle justice, which is in fact a real thing, and won't be for life anymore just for a year or so but it is coming back.
Banishment originated in Greece, it then spawned off from Greece and went to other countries. In Greece they used banishment when someone in the town/city/community did terrible things like homicide(killing). These banishments were forever, or exiles.
9/10 people who are given the the option choose a year or few banishment sentence rather than prison for the year or few.
Sometimes people are only banished from their city/town for a crime like drug dealing. this will give them a second chance to start over and not be labeled *drug dealer* so they can start fresh.
Some other words for banishment are: deportation, dismissal, expatriation, expulsion, ostracism, ouster and removal
There are many reasons people are banished one of them is so that the community is sustained and doesn't collapse to crime.
