What would be an alternative to banishment in modern times?

I've read from The Anarchist Library that anarchists would most likely have someone banished instead of imprisoned, but since almost every piece of earth is now owned, what would we do?

murder. or, more realistically, kick them out of said community and let them be someone else's problem.

there are a lot of variables that make it impossible (at least for me, at least today) to answer this question, but I think if you peruse previously asked questions, you will find you aren't alone in being worried about such things.
most likely, i wouldn't feel the need to do anything about most of the "offenses" that land people in prison today.

and for the situations where  i probably would desire to take some sort of action, i couldn't tell you with much certainty what i'd do (or want to do) until it happened (to me, or to people or places or creatures i care about).

one could likely conjure up as many "alternatives" to prison as the particular circumstances, people, and places involved in any given conflict.
