Request to Core devs; please explain your vision on increasing the block size.

I'm relatively new to the debate, very strongly anti-BU/EC but am mildly in favor of/don't see the problem with bigger blocks/a planned hard-fork. Please, educate me on your view as to if the max block size should ever change, if not why not, if yes how, etc.
