In this blog there is a sentence:
The failure of the "I Surrender" leaflets led the American PSYOP specialists to carefully construct a leaflet with the words "I Cease Resistance."
Does "cease" more often express the idea of temporarily stopping doing something, or is it more likely to imply a permanent stoppage? The dictionary doesn't explicitly mention this point.
to cause to come to an end especially gradually : no longer continue
a: to come to an end
b: to bring an activity or action to an end : discontinue
