I can't help but think there is a sort of ignorance in the Party.

The Party wants total control of the population. They have done so (expect the few like Winston and Julia.) They say they are trying to cure him (Winston) after he is brought to the Minestry of Love and is troutured. But after the Party has total control over everybody(including the few people that are agianst Big Brother) what do they have to control?

O'Brian says that if everybody is ignorant then the Party will rule forever without retaliation.

What I am have trouble understaning is the fact that if everybody is ignorent then the people will not be hard to govern. So what is the point in governing people who are in a sense brain washed?

After a point of total control what is there? They will have to find somthing new to satify there need for power.
