The Free Comrade began existence as a department of C. L. Swartz.

The paper underscored all lines of agreement between anarchists. The new Free Comrade presented itself as "the organ of the Larger Socialism, of the Free Comradeship of all who liberate, of all workers and dreamers of the New Time".

The comradeship of Free Socialists " invites to its members all Anarchists, Socialists, Communists, Single-Taxers, Collectivists, Cooperators, advocates of votes for women, of the Simple Life, of the Organization of Labor, - heretics, reformers and revolutionaries of every ilk" (July 1910, n.s. vol. I, n. 1). It intended to be in the spirit of Shelley, William Morris, Walt Whitman, Edward Carpenter: " ’Leaves of Grass’ and ’Towards Democracy’ are the scriptures of our movement (ibid.).
