  1. It depends on what is meant by pleasure in this case. You can ask yourself the question: do the right actions bring moral pleasure? For example, such a correct act as brushing your teeth in the morning despite a headache after a Friday night party can be considered both as a pleasure for what you have done (moral satisfaction with correct behavior) and as a forced necessity, a burden. In my opinion, this act should not be considered as a kind of moral pleasure, such an interpretation allows us to assert that altruism in its pure form exists, for example, in the form of actions that are necessary but do not bring any pleasure, the attitude to which can be described as a forced necessity, and not as a noble gesture.
