Why are the cons of increasing block size? (Reddit Bitcoin)


I have been a long time btc advocate but I realize everytime a bull run occurs the mempool quickly clogs up and fees skyrocket. I had to wait 12 hours for my last transaction to go get confirmed. Bitcoin cash doesn’t seem like the right choice idk Roger Ver ticks me the wrong way. So basically my question is why are we artificially limiting the block size in favor of LN which will be a great solution but require a lot of technical experience to be able o set up and use. Are their any cons to increasing block size say to 2-8mb??
