Why don't do it ourselves?

This is supposed to be a decentralised currency. Why don't all the bitcoin maximilists get a vote put together to decide the Value of a bitcoin and start using it as money from there. Right now people are too scared to pay someone in bitcoin incase it goes up or down in value (which has been decided by exchanges and the current financial system). Why don't we just say from now on 1 bitcoin is equivalent to what 100k dollars is now, and then we have an idea of Value we can stick to until adoption is mainstream enough. If you truly belive in the use of bitcoin as a currency this shouldn't scare you its either going to start being used this way after a currency breakdown or we just start and grow naturally like it did thousands of years ago with 1 shell, shiney rock, metal coin gaining its value , no? Surely the first currencys didnt just have value already.
