This is a proposed enhancement.

Currently, I do not see an option for forcing excerpts on the blog page, which I think look better than showing the full post on the blog.

I could just change the index to the_excerpt() or I could use the more tag, but I don't want to go through my posts and add the more tag and I would rather not force myself or others to edit the core theme.

What do you think? If you like this, should the functionality be included in the customizer or a theme settings page?

I definitely like this and I agree that the excerpt looks better, I just never want to hamper flexibility. How would it work? Would the user be forced to adhere to any formatting rules or would the posts automatically be truncated after a certain length?
It would need to be an option in the customizer. If people want a long ass page, they shall have it.

I haven't worked with the customizer much, but I would say that the user would have the option to set whether they want full post or excerpt and then they'd choose how many words they wanted to show.

They could then set how many excerpts show on the settings->reading page.
