In Fahrenheit 451, censorship occurs in the burning of books and the control of media. Willful ignorance allowed censorship to occur, it allowed history and thought to be manipulated. If the populace is kept ignorant, drugged, and addicted to reality television, which is anything but real.... they don't care, don't want to know, and are too ignorant to act or question.
